Rehoming wildlife

Ecologists have found no bats living along the pathway route but they did find a “lounge” of lizards. The lizards were moved to new habitats within walking distance of their old homes. The then cleared areas had lizard-proof fencing added to discourage the retiles from trying to reestablish themselves where the pathway will go.

Almost 700 metres of pathway at Rizal Reserve and Sandy Lane is currently under construction. It is scheduled to be completed in 2021.   

We are designing the two sections of the pathway for which we have funding and resource consent. These are Section Two (Olympic Park to Ken Maunder Park) and Section Five (Laurieston Park to the North West Cycleway).
