The Te Awa River Road Cycleway from Cambridge to Tamahere was completed before Christmas and will open to cyclists next month.
Construction to clear some trees and complete retaining walls, drainage installation, recontouring and landscaping have finished.
All the concrete for the cycleway has been poured and there are a couple of minor concrete pours still to be done for picnic table areas.
The boardwalk, where it connects the cycleway to the Velodrome, security fencing and mesh have all been installed and all three of the bridges are now in place.
The Te Awa River Ride Cycleway provides a safe and convenient route for Waipā residents to Hamilton and beyond.
Existing stretches of the Te Awa River Ride north of Hamilton are already one of New Zealand’s busiest cycleways and is showing to have key social and economic benefits to the region.
The full Hamilton to Cambridge section was built by four different organisations, Waka Kotahi (NZ Transport Agency), Waipā District Council, Waikato District Council and Hamilton City Council.
