The Raumanga Shared Path is being extended towards the central city, ultimately connecting past the new Civic Centre to the Kamo Shared Path.

The project is funded through the "shovel-ready" works programme from the Ministry of Business, Innovation and Employment and will be built in three stages:

  • The existing paths between Tarewa intersection and Bernard Street will be upgraded with lighting, CCTV and general improvements to increase amenity and make the path safer.

  • There will be significant clearing of weeds and revegetation along the Raumanga Stream. This work is part of the Blue Green Network programme. This work will be on the stretch between Otaika Road underpass and Bernard Street bridge.

  • Signalised crossings have been built on Central Avenue to provide safe crossing points. The works are being combined with Slow Streets work in the Avenues area that involve the construction of raised platforms, speed humps and some footpath improvements. This work is expected to be complete in June 2023.

Works on Stage 1 (between Lovers Lane and Carruth Park) was completed in August 2022. Work on the next stage is underway.
