Te whakapapa o te ara

Building in stages

Ka mahia ngā mahi i te roanga o te whā tau, mai i tōna tīmatanga hei te hikumutu o te tau 2023 ki tōna whakatutukitanga hei te tau 2027.

Construction will take place over four years, starting later in 2023 and finishing in 2027.

I tēnei wā tonu, e waihangatia ana te wāhanga tuatahi o te ara, te whai tonu i te whakaaetanga o ngā kaunihera o Ngāmotu me Taranaki, me te riro whenua hoki mō te hanganga o te wāhanga tuatahi o te ara.

Ko te whāinga kia tīmata ngā mahi hanga i te hikumutu o tēnei tau tonu ki Otupaiia me te rāhiri i te hapori i te wā ka huakina ia wāhanga.

Currently, we are designing stage one of the path and obtaining resource consents from our Council and Taranaki Regional Council, and working to secure land for the pathway’s route in stage one.

We aim to start building stage one later this year at Otupaiia/Marine Park and we’ll open each completed section to the public as we progress.
