Status: Construction (in stages)

Latest update: 5 April 2024

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 Te Whau Pathway Environmental Trust (TWPET)

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 the Northwestern Shared Path at Te Atatu Peninsula and Karaka Park in Green Bay, 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:

  • Area 1: Roberts Field to Bridge Ave
  • Area 2: Bridge Ave to State Highway 16, Northwestern motorway.

Construction is now underway.
