Proposal status: Closed
Links to Glen Innes Cycleways will add 7.3 kilometres of dedicated cycleways to Glen Innes, linking into the wider Auckland network.
Once built, new cycleways in Glen Innes will provide safe and attractive connections to the 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, accommodating cyclists who want to travel to and from Auckland city.
The new cycle lanes will take three years to construct and will be done in stages, starting with Taniwha Street (between Line Road and West Tamaki Road).
We are seeking feedback on the following improvements in your area:
We are proposing to make layout changes to the following sections:
- Line Road (between Taniwha Street and West Tamaki Road)
- Stonefields Avenue
- Morrin Road (between Stonefields Avenue and Merton Road)
- Taniwha Street (between Apirana Avenue and Line Road)
- Merton Road (between Morrin Road and Apirana Avenue)
Community consultation in 2017 provided insight into how cyclists would use local cycleways. Feedback gathered helped our design team in establishing a better outcome for the community. Detailed design has been completed for the following streets:
- Merton Road (College Road to Morrin Road)
- Apirana Avenue (Pilkington Road to Taniwha Street)
- Point England Road (Apirana Avenue to Pilkington Road)
- Taniwha Street (between Line Road and West Tamaki Road)

As part of this project key intersections and roundabouts will be improved, making them safer for all road users (including cyclists and pedestrians). This will allow increased travel choices in and around Glen Innes.
The project will also provide safe, accessible and appealing cycle facilities for all ages and abilities, with dedicated cycle lanes separated from traffic.
Public consultation in 2015 and 2017 was undertaken to ensure the design of the new cycleways was in partnership with the community. Feedback helped us identify key routes and ways we can improve the outcome for future users. Public feedback report 2018 (PDF 2.8MB).

Glen Innes: Safe with us
Auckland Transport cares for your safety. We want to make our roads safe for everyone, people walking and cycling, especially for our kids and senior citizens and people driving. Projects like this one around Glen Innes are another step towards our goal of achieving no deaths or serious injuries on our roads.
