NORTHCOTE SAFE CYCLE ROUTE

HEB Construction started the construction of the Northcote Safe Cycle Route, on behalf of Auckland Transport, in July 2017. The route stretches from the Taharoto Road/Northcote Road intersection (near Smales Farm) to Northcote Point Ferry Terminal.

There were limited or no dedicated cycling facilities along the route, which services many attractions that could be accessed by bike, including schools, workplaces, public transport interchanges, leisure and shopping centres.

The walking and cycling improvements along the route will improve the safety of pedestrians and cyclists and implement this section of the Auckland Cycle Network.

The improvements include on-road and off-road walking and cycling facilities. Some of the key changes include:

  • An off-road shared walking and cycling path on either side of Northcote Road from the Taharoto Road/Northcote Road intersection to the Northcote Road/Ocean View Road/Lake Road intersection.

  • Improvements to walking and cycling facilities at the Northcote Road/Ocean View Road/Lake Road roundabout.

  • An on-road cycle lane on either side of Lake Road and an off-road shared walking and cycling path on the eastern side of Lake Road from the Northcote Road/Ocean View Road/Lake Road intersection to Exmouth Road/Raleigh Road/Lake Road intersection.

  • Improvements to walking and cycling facilities at the Exmouth Road/Raleigh Road/Lake Road roundabout.

  • An on-road cycle lane on the western side of Lake Road and an off-road shared walking and cycling path on the eastern side of Lake Road from the Exmouth Road/Raleigh Road/Lake Road intersection to the Lake Road/Onewa Road intersection.

  • Improvements to walking and cycling facilities at the Lake Road/Onewa Road/Queen Street intersection.

  • A mix of improvements to encourage more cycling along Queen Street, including on-road cycle lanes, off-road cycle paths, off-road shared walking and cycling paths, and speed-calming measures.

 

The project is due for completion in September 2019.
