Ara Tawa Details
Ara Tawa, the pathway of Tawa and Porirua.
Wellington City Council and the Tawa Valley Pathway Walkway Committee (a local community group) worked together to build a shared walkway and cycle route. The route follows the rail corridor and provides a new shared pathway from Willowbank Park to Kenepuru Railway Station.
The shared path provides a safer cycling route and encourage more people to get about on foot or by bike. The 5km walkway links to nearby streets, the shopping centre and other key spots like railway stations, schools, recreational areas and parks.
The Council worked closely with the local community on this project.
