Help Make Sea-Path a Reality

Generation Zero calls on submissions for NZTA’s proposed Sea-Path

 

NZTA have recently announced they are in the processes for getting Sea-Path consented and built. Sea-Path is a cycle-way connection from the proposed Sky-path termination point at Northcote Point and would run alongside the Northern Motorway through until Takapuna Metropolitan Centre opening up a major active transport mode potentially between Takapuna and the City Centre on the other side of the Waitemata Harbour.

 

From Generation Zero:

MAKE A QUICK SUBMISSION ON SEAPATH TO CONNECT UP TO SKYPATH

Generation Zero and Bike Auckland support the plans for Auckland’s SeaPath, a 3 km shared path connecting Takapuna and the expanding North Shore cycle network, to the widely anticipated SkyPath.

NZTA are supporting a landward option, which means SeaPath will link in with the various other cycling and walking projects that are being developed on the North Shore. We agree that this is the best design, as it opens up SeaPath for a lot more users and ensures the protection of endangered dotterels.

It also means safer connections to and from SkyPath, the future walking and cycling route over the Auckland Harbour bridge.

This is all good news. However, to make SeaPath a reality we really need you to show your support.

And to maximize SeaPath’s potential, we need your help to tell NZTA that these following points are critical to getting SeaPath right.

The ‘quick-submission’ link is over at the Generation Zero site and includes:

  1. Wide path to allow separation between cyclists and pedestrians
  2. Grade separation at the congested Onewa Road intersection near the motorway interchange
  3. Connections to AUT (North Shore), Akoranga bus station and Devonport/Takapuna

 

So do that quick submission today for what could very well be Auckland’s most popular cycle transit route!
