The Te Whau Pathway Project is a collaboration between Auckland Council, Auckland Transport, the Whau and Henderson-Massey Local Boards, Te Kawerau a Maki, Ngati Whatua Orakei and the Whau Coastal Walkway Environmental Trust (WCWET).
The project will deliver a shared pathway approximately 7.1km of 4m wide boardwalk, and 3.3km of 3m wide on grade concrete path. The shared path will connect between Te Atatu Peninsula and Karaka Park, linking the Waitemata Harbour with Manukau Harbour via a range of environments including the coastal marine area, areas of established mangroves, public open spaces containing vegetated and grassed areas. The path will largely follow the western side of the Whau River and will be designed to accommodate pedestrian and cyclists.
The pathway is being built in stages. Construction began in 2015 and to date, 3.9km of concrete pathway has been constructed.
The project received New Zealand Government funding to build two sections. Construction will soon be underway on these two sections.
- Area 1: Roberts Field to State Highway 16, N/W motorway.
- Area 2: Wingate street to Ken Maunder Park
