Before July 2020
Without the support of these financial supporters, the pathway would simply not be possible. So a big shout out to…
- Auckland Council
- Auckland Transport
- Henderson-Massey Local Board
- The Trusts Community Foundation
- Whau Local Board
Working together these organisations have helped complete several smaller sections, 3.7km in total. You can enjoy these finished sections now.
After July 2020
2020 was a turning point for the pathway’s funding. As a result of the Covid-19 pandemic, Central Government considered funding infrastructure projects with a value of over $10 million. These “shovel-ready” projects needed to have an immediate stimulatory effect on the construction industry, its workforce and the economy.
Auckland Council applied for infrastructure funding and was successful. Crown Infrastructure Partners, a central Government body, agreed to fund $35 million towards the design and construction of Sections 2 and 5 of the pathway.
