Let's Go projects make it easier for you to choose to walk and cycle
Past projects: a snapshot
Mangati Walkway upgrade
The Mangati Walkway in Bell Block had an upgrade in 2011 with an extension out to De Havilland Drive. This made it possible to walk and cycle from the Coastal Walkway to the Industrial Estate without having to use the road. In 2016 more improvements were made to the section between the Coastal Walkway and Parklands Avenue.

The Waiwhakaiho Walkway upgrade in 2012 saw a significant improvement to the path and connection from Riversdale Drive in Merrilands through to the netball courts.
Huatoki Walkway upgrade
In 2012 the Huatoki Walkway had it's path upgraded from Carrington Street to Frankley Road. This included a new bridge connecting to Sycamore grove. In 2014 there were more improvements on the Upper Huatoki, from Frankley Street to Parsons Street including on-road improvements across to Camden Street.

Let's Go street projects: Pendarves Street and Davies Lane
Remember when you used to be able to play in your streets? The Let's Go street projects were built in collaboration with both residents and schools, putting people first in street design. These projects were completed in 2012 and are the catalyst for the Neighbourhood Led Projects
