Harbour Crossing for active modes confirmed
The Government has confirmed plans for a brand-new cycling and walking bridge across the Waitematā Harbour - at an estimated cost of $685 million. Transport Minister Michael Wood announced the project, which features a new standalone structure right next to the existing Harbour Bridge, on its east (city) side. The new bridge will not carry buses or other vehicles. The project is now approved and funded - and is expected to take five years to consent and build. The new bridge is to become part of the Northern Pathway, which will extend dedicated cycling and walking routes to the North Shore. Read the full article by NZ Herald below.
