The bike path on the St Patrick's College side of the road connects with the new paths on Rongotai Road, and in time, will connect with the new paths now being built around Evans Bay and on Cobham Drive.
Councillors approved plans for the new Kilbirnie bus hub and a two-way bike path on Evans Bay Parade in Kilbirnie at a meeting on 19 April 2018.
The two-way bike path and separate footpath on the St Patrick’s College side of Evans Bay Parade, between Cobham Drive and Kilbirnie Crescent, have replaced the shared path. Separate paths will make things safer and easier for everyone.
At the Kilbirnie end, the bike path connects with the new paths on Rongotai Road. At the Cobham Drive end, the path connects with the shared path on Evans Bay as far as NIWA at Greta Point. In time it will connect with the new two-way bike path being built around Evans Bay and part of Oriental Bay, and the new path being constructed on Cobham Drive. It is part of a network connecting Kilbirnie with the city, Newtown and other parts of the eastern suburbs.
