Project overview

Better walking and cycling facilities on Ngapipi bridge are a key part of the wider programme of improvements in the Ōrākei area, including the Tamaki Drive Cycle Route and the Tamaki Drive-Ngapipi Road intersection upgrade.

Once the bridge is widened, the existing shared path on the north (seaward) side of the bridge will become a separated 2 way cycleway and footpath, while the shared path on the southern side will become a separated 1 way cycleway and footpath

The decision to widen the bridge followed a detailed structural assessment of the bridge which identified that there is no requirement to replace it. Widening the bridge also allows the existing four traffic lanes to remain the same.
