Liberate a lane: the low cost, elegant solution for walking & cycling the Waitemata:
While we wait for NZTA to accept SkyPath as the long-term solution, we have an interim solution that will get us all home faster… liberate a lane of the Bridge to enable Aucklanders to get out of their cars and walk, scooter, cycle, etc. The resulting reduction in vehicles means traffic flows will improve across the network.

Please take a moment to email Hon Michael Wood, Minister of Transport that you support SkyPath and in the meantime, NZTA should trial liberating a lane to make our bridge multi-modal and provide travel choice to Aucklanders.
