We're making improvements for people walking and biking along the Cobham Drive shared pathway, and to provide a connection to Evans Bay Parade.

Cobham Drive separated paths

The Cobham Drive route runs around Evans Bay from Miramar Avenue to the Evans Bay Parade intersection. This will be an important section of the Great Harbour Way, running between the bay and the main transport route to the airport.             

This improved route for bikes will provide a smoother connection for Miramar residents with Evans Bay, Kilbirnie and the central city. School children will have a safer ride to school and recreational riders an attractive introduction to the scenic route around the peninsula. It will also make things safer and more relaxing for pedestrians.

This proposal does not include a crossing on Cobham Drive, but we are working together with the New Zealand Transport Agency on possible solutions for the longer term. 

Where the route will go

The route will be developed on the north harbour-side of Cobham Drive where the existing shared path lies.
