Boardwalk Widening

Workers working on the extension of the boardwalk.Planning Started: August 2009
Construction Started: October 2009
Completed: December 2009

The second stage in widening the boardwalks along the Ahuriri foreshore and Inner Harbour channel was completed for the busy summer holiday period.

This $266,500 project involved replacing the existing boardwalk between Perfume Point and the Hawke's Bay Sport Fishing Club and constructing two new concrete pathways, one to connect the new boardwalk to the previously completed section, and the other bordering Ahuriri?s inner harbour, the Iron Pot.

The new boardwalk is 222 metres long, four metres wide and includes three viewing platforms looking out to Scapa Flow, the Inner Harbour channel named after the great Orkney Islands harbour. The concrete sections are both 3.5 metres wide, which is the standard width for combined paths in promenade areas (the boardwalks need to be wider because the edges are not at ground level).

The boardwalks form part of a network of cycling and walking routes throughout the city. The Council launched the Rotary Pathway, as this network is called, when it opened the first of the specially formed routes linking Westshore and Bayview in 2003.
