The NZ Transport Agency and Auckland Transport are delighted that work to widen and improve the Orakei Basin Boardwalk is now finished. The upgrade of the boardwalk forms Section 3 of the Glen Innes to Tamaki Drive Shared Path.
A landmark new pedestrian bridge will be installed over Auckland’s Southern Motorway (SH1) later this month, connecting communities on both sides of the motorway and linking to a new 4.5km walking and cycling path between Papakura and Takanini.
Ongoing rain combined with a complex rock face at South Westland’s Clarke Bluff, SH6, mean the highway closure put in place yesterday afternoon will remain in place all day today (Tuesday) and Wednesday morning.
A rockfall, triggered by heavy rain in recent days, between Haast in South Westland and the top of the Haast Pass has closed State Highway 6 just after 3 pm today. The route connects Westland to Makarora on the Otago side.
