Big plans for Harbour Bridge Park

Panuku Development Auckland is shortly commencing design of a walking and cycling route from Curran Street in Herne Bay through to Harbour Bridge Park and Westhaven Drive.

‘Harbour Bridge Park’ is a key waterfront area that is so far undeveloped. It is bordered by Curran Street and the Northern Motorway with an additional triangular shaped green area to the eastern side of the motorway on ramp. It is used and relied on by a number of groups including AJ Hackett’s bridge climb and bungy operations.

A St Mary’s Bay Association committee representative recently attended a Panuku Development Auckland workshop aimed at exploring options for an overall vision for the area in the short, medium and long term. The area has a number of constraints including multiple ownership, NZTA’s maintenance requirements and significant in-ground infrastructure.

Panuku Development Auckland, through urban designers Landlab, are to summarise the workshop suggestions which will then be circulated for further discussion.

If you have any bright ideas for how this park should look or what activities it could be used for, do forward them to the SMBA committee via wendymof@xtra.co.nz
