Construction to start on missing sections of Northern Line Cycleway

Construction of the missing sections of the Northern Line Cycleway linking Papanui through to Northwood is due to commence on 21 August 2023. Unfortunately KiwiRail has advised there’ll be further delays to upgraded pedestrian & cycle crossings adjacent to the railway line on Sawyers Arms, Langdons, and Harewood Roads. See more in this post from Think Papanui curator Simon Britten:

Good news: construction is due to start later this month on missing sections of the Northern Line Cycleway, between Tuckers & Sturrocks Roads and from Barnes Road to Main North Road. A start work notice is due to be delivered to nearby residents and businesses, and can also be found at the link below.

Not so good news: railway crossing upgrades at Sawyers Arms, Langdons, and Harewood roads were provisionally booked for November 2023 but the Council has now been notified by KiwiRail that the earliest possible time for these upgrades will be July 2024.
