Our contractors Downer asphalted another 300m of bike path last week, and have begun excavating the road edge on the next section ahead of putting in the new kerb line through to the middle of Weka Bay.
The development of this next 250m section will take a few months and will include a continuation of the new concrete footpath and asphalt bike path. At the southern end of Weka Bay, it will also include a new low concrete wall between the two paths.
Some finishing work will be going on in Kio Bay too.
This will include work on the hill side around the properties at the southern end of Kio Bay, and the marking and installation of the new pedestrian crossing and beacons.
The contractors are also progressively installing a new timber and stainless-steel mesh balustrade.
As the work progresses, most of the construction barriers in Kio Bay will be removed, and the daytime stop/go traffic management and location of the one-way section set up slightly further around the coast.
