All work has been completed and the Whataku Cycleway had reopened and the detour has been removed. Thanks for your patience while this work was carried out.

What we are doing

NZTA is repairing the storm damage to the Whakatu Cycleway, including the installation of rock protection and re-sealing. This will involve the closure of the cycleway from the Richmond Aquatic Centre to Orphanage Stream.

A detour will be available via the Aquatic Centre underpass, Main Road Stoke and the Orphanage Stream underpass, as shown by the dotted yellow line in the map above.

Work is scheduled to start on Sunday 20 May and is expected to take around three weeks to complete, weather permitting.
