SkyPath + SeaPath – Let’s do this!

To create a step-change in walking and cycling accessibility for Auckland, Labour will commit up to $30m for Skypath – a walking and cycling shared path on the city side of the Auckland Harbour Bridge.

Allowing Aucklanders to use their HOP cards to go free whilst charging tourists to use SkyPath can fund the shortfall in SkyPath’s construction cost – which we estimate to be circa $15m (being the total construction cost estimate of $45m less the Government’s contribution of $30m).

NZTA is funding SeaPath (the connection to Takapauna) and the localised strengthening works required by SkyPath to the harbour bridge which are estimated at $10 – 12m .  Council are funding works at either end to accommodate the landings and additional connections.
