14 September 2021: Consultation starts on the section between Greta Point and Cobham Drive More Less
Now's the time to have your say on the proposed draft designs for Evans Bay Parade, from Greta Point to Cobham Drive. Consultation will run for just over four weeks, closing on 14 October.
Due to Covid alert levels, instead of community drop-in sessions we are holding two online webinars on 21 and 29 September so people still get the chance to hear about the project and ask questions:
6 April 2021: Work in Weka Bay getting under way More Less
Construction work on the new walking and bike paths will extend around the corner into Weka Bay from this week.
The contractors have some finishing work still to do in Kio Bay so there will be construction activity continuing there too. Weather permitting, the bike path through Kio Bay is expected to be asphalted in mid-April. A new pedestrian crossing will be installed in Kio Bay once the lights, which are on order, arrive. Unfortunately, there are still some Covid-19-related supply chain issues and delays. We hope this work will happen in June but can't confirm that yet.
The work in Weka Bay will extend part way around the bay. As has happened in other areas, the contractors will first mill and remove the existing surfacing along the edge of the road and footpath edge and then lay the new kerbline. They will then lay the new concrete footpath and develop the new seaward side bus stop, which will be slightly south of the existing bus stop.
The parking on the seaward side opposite numbers 140 to 170 Evans Bay Parade will be cordoned off from Friday 9 April so this can happen.
There will be construction fences, diggers, and other heavy vehicles to accommodate – and we need to prioritise people on foot and bikes, and through traffic.
If you have a vehicle parked here, please shift it by Friday. If it still parked here on 9 April, the contractors will need to get it moved to a safer spot. Our Contact Centre staff will be able to tell you where it has been moved to. They are available 24/7 on 04 499 4444 and will just need your registration number.
The parking on the seaward side of the road (opposite numbers 140 to 170 Evans Bay Parade) is being permanently removed to provide more space for people using this busy commuter and recreational route. Separate walking and bike paths and the new bus stop will be developed her
