Shared Pathway Open Earlier Than Expected
Published: 07 Dec 2016 - - Author: Press Release
The Urban Shared Pathway, which runs from the Whanganui City Bridge to Bedford Avenue, will open at 5.00pm, Wednesday, December 7.
Project Manager Damien Wood said the work on the new section is two days ahead of schedule, thanks to a great job by the contractors.
“The plan was for the Whanganui City Bridge to Bedford Avenue section of the pathway to be completed in time for the 3 Bridges Marathon this Saturday, December 10, so we are pleased the contractors Bullocks have finished it well in advance.
“With the lighter evenings and fine weather, we hope to see people out and about on the pathway from this evening onwards.”
The three-metre shared pathway enables people to get around on foot, by bicycle, scooter, skateboard and with mobility aids.
A second shared pathway, Te Tuaiwi, is planned for construction in 2017/18. It will provide a safe route across the Whanganui City Bridge, through town and past some of our central schools. It connects with many existing pathways and will give children a safer route to school.
