Last year Government funded a series of Napier projects from its $100m Worker Redeployment Package, used to provide training and employment for three to six months for people who lost their jobs due to COVID-19.
This runs from the corner of Ulyatt Road and Harold Holt Ave, along the outskirts of Pirimai and through farmland for 4km, to Te Awa Ave, next to the Maraenui Golf Club, crossing Eriksen, Willowbank and Riverbend Roads.
An offshoot of the path also runs along the Tannery Stream to connect with an existing pathway on Harold Holt Ave.
Features include concrete islands at the road crossings, which were installed so cyclists and walkers crossing the 100 km/h roads have a shorter distance to cross the road, and to increase their visibility to motorists.
The existing pathway was upgraded to a 2.5m wide concrete strip, except in the areas where limestone was more suitable. Limestone is used in areas where vehicles may need to cross the path for maintenance, for example.
A new crossing was also installed at the Meeanee Road end, and limestone added to the section of the pathway which linked the Johns Road end with the Hawke’s Bay Regional Council Reserve, and Hawke’s Bay Trail Water Ride by the Tutaekuri River.
A 2.5m wide concrete pathway running from Church Rd to the top of Tironui Drive was added, for cyclists and walkers. A 2m wide limestone walking track into the Sugarloaf Reserve was also added.
A 3.5m wide concrete pathway on the seaward side was added to the existing pathway, stretching from the northern end of the car park north of Bay Skate to outside this facility to allow cyclists and other pathway users to bypass one of the busiest recreational areas on Marine Parade, the basketball court and seated areas.
