Thank you for your request in relation to cycle facilities between AMETI and the Glen Innes to Tāmaki
Drive shared path.
Auckland Transport are considering a number of projects in the Tāmaki area. These projects seek
a network response to all modes of transport – including cycling facilities.
The only cycleway project close to Panmure is Links to Glen Innes Cycleways
, which a number of
dedicated cycleways in the suburbs of Glen Innes, Stonefields, Saint Johns, and Point England are
proposed. This project is currently at design phase and construction programmed for 2019.
The cycleways will be safe and attractive cycle routes that connect these suburbs to the Glen Innes
train station, the town centre, schools, shops, and community facilities in the area. They will also
connect to the Glen Innes to Tāmaki Drive Shared Path (section 1), which will enable people to cycle
on dedicated cycle lanes all the way from Glen Innes (and surrounding suburbs) to the city centre
and the waterfront.
Some of the destinations that will be connected with these cycleways include Colin Maiden Park,
Ngahue Reserve, the Auckland Netball Centre, Scarbro Tennis Centre, Tāmaki College, University
of Auckland (Tāmaki Campus), Te Oro Music and Arts Centre, and the Glen Innes train station.
There will also be improvements to key intersections and roundabouts along the routes, which will
make them safer for all road users.
This project will:
• provide safe, accessible and appealing cycle facilities for people on bikes of all ages and
• provide more transport choices for the community
• improve pedestrian safety and access along the routes
• improve safety and accessibility of key intersections along the routes
• improve safety at two existing pedestrian crossings on Apirana Avenue
• improve the bus terminal in Glen Innes to make it safer for bus users, people on bikes, and
• improve the connection to the Glen Innes to Tāmaki Drive Shared Path from Merton Road
• make it easier to cycle to local destinations in Glen Innes, including schools, shops,
restaurants, and community facilities
• provide additional bicycle parking at the Glen Innes train station.
The AMETI programme does consider the transport network north of Panmure. This begins from Te
Horeta Road and Panmure station (completed in 2014) through to Glen Innes. This project is in its
early stages and is not currently funded for construction. The project will consider the transport
network in its entirety, including options for cycleway facilities in the area.
We trust the above information has addressed the matters raised however, should you believe that
we have not responded appropriately to your request, you have the right in accordance with
section 27(3) of the LGOIMA to make a complaint to the Office of the Ombudsman to seek an
investigation and review in regard to this matter.
