Links to Glen Innes Cycleways Links to Glen Innes Cycleways

Proposal status: Construction

Links to Glen Innes Cycleways will add 7.3 kilometres of dedicated cycleways to Glen Innes, linking into the wider Auckland network.

Project overview

New cycleways in Glen Innes will provide safe and attractive connections to Glen Innes train station, the town centre, schools, shops, parks, and community facilities. The Merton Road section of the cycleway will provide a connection to the existing Glen Innes to Tamaki Drive Shared Path, for cyclists who want to travel to and from Auckland city.

The cycleways will extend along Taniwha Street, Line Road, Apirana Avenue, Stonefields Avenue, Point England Road, Morrin Road and Merton Road.

Taniwha Street – Line Road to West Tamaki Road update

Work started in October to construct new cycleways in Taniwha Street, between Line Road and West Tamaki Road.

These upgrades include a new dedicated cycleway on both sides of the road, new bus shelters and pedestrian crossings. This is the first section of the connected cycleway network to be built in Glen Innes.

The graphic below shows the new layout on each section of Taniwha Street, including the following changes:

  • Upgrades to the Taniwha Street/Line Road intersection and the Taniwha Street/West Tamaki Road intersection
  • Upgrades to the roundabout at the Taniwha Street/Elstree Avenue intersection

Upgrades are expected to be complete by mid-2023.
