The purpose of this review was to identify whether the integrity of the original proposal for three off-road cycle paths from Waitakere City Council (one of the 7 councils in the Auckland region), as reviewed and approved by Infrastructure Auckland, had been retained in the current tender drawings. ARTA also required advice on whether it should approve construction for the Lower Waikumete Path, the Oratia Stream Path, and the Lower Opanuku Path.
A key finding was that the original proposal (on which funding approval was based) provided for lighting of the off-road cycle paths. This feature was missing in the final designs, however.
