Puari ki Wairewa: The Little River Link connects new developments in the south-west into the Central City as well as the business areas at Middleton and Addington.
The new cycleway runs from Moorhouse Avenue through Church Square to Barrington Street.
There are cycle crossings over Wrights and Lincoln Roads where they intersect the Southern Motorway, as well as improving the cycleway through Marylands Reserve.
The route will eventually connect to the Little River Rail Trail taking riders from Hagley Park through Addington, Wigram, Prebbleton, Lincoln and Motukarara on the way out to Little River.
The next section is stage 2 of the NZ Transport Agency's Southern Motorway development(external link), which is now under construction.
The project, along with the cycleway, is expected to be completed in the first half of 2020.
