Puari ki Rapanui: Starting at the Ferrymead Bridge, this route leads into the Central City via Linwood.
Rapanui - Shag Rock Cycleway will appeal to people accessing local destinations as well as weekend recreational cyclists heading to Sumner via the Christchurch Coastal Pathway. There will be a connection to the Ōpāwaho River Route at Ferrymead.
The Central City end of the route is currently in construction while consultation for the Ferrymead end of the route was completed at the end of 2016.
Consultation on the Rapanui - Shag Rock Cycleway between Linwood Park and the Ferrymead Bridge closed on December 15 last year. Information on the feedback received and next steps will be sent to submitters early in 2017.

Construction of the city end of the Rapanui - Shag Rock Cycleway, from the Fizgerald Avenue and Worcester Street intersection to Linwood Park, has started.
The project involves the construction of 2,500 metres of new cycleway, shared paths, stormwater, kerb and channel, and carriageway improvements. Two existing signalised intersections will also be upgraded. A new signalised cycle and pedestrian crossing will be installed at Aldwins Road. Landscaping and lighting upgrades will also be completed.
Staff have modified plans to keep full traffic movements through the intersection of England and Worcester streets.
