Proposed Walter Strevens Drive ramp link
The proposed cycling and walking ramp link at Walter Strevens Drive will be 3-metres wide and will open up access for Conifer Grove and residents on the eastern side of the Southern Motorway (SH1) to an expanding off-road cycle network, with opportunities for recreation and connections to key destinations.
There will be minimal tree removal, additional landscaping and lighting to illuminate entry and exit to the ramp and improve safety.
A 4.5km off-road shared walking and cycling path is currently being constructed alongside the western side of the Southern Motorway between Takanini and Papakura, with local road connections to Great South Road, Brylee Drive, and through the reserves to Walter Strevens Drive, Gardone Terrace and Pescara Point.
A new bridge connection at Pescara Point will link the communities of Karaka and Papakura.
This project is being carried out by NZ Transport Agency. Find out more about the NZTA Southern Corridor Improvements project.
