A second section of the Kamo shared path is open for cyclists, runners and walkers to enjoy.

Part of stage two from Cross St through to Kamo Rd is partially open as far as Kensington Ave with the rest of the path through to Kamo Rd due to open by the end of October.

It joins the section of stage one from Vinery Lane through to Cross St which has been open since May. The rest of that stage, from Rust Ave to Vinery Lane, will be open by the end of this month.

The third stage, from Kamo Rd through to Jack St, is due to start construction in November, with anticipated completion in March 2019.

To inform the local community and schools in the area, the council is holding an open afternoon on September 27 between 3pm and 6pm in the theatre room at Whau Valley School.

People will be able to learn about the project, view the progress, understand what construction will be taking place and ask the supervising and managing engineers questions.

The fourth stage is from Adams Place to Fisher Tce. The design for the underpass has been approved and preparation works have started. Installation of the underpass is due to take place over the five days between Christmas and New Year this summer, with the stage to be completed by the end of April next year.

The design of a future extension from Fisher Tce to Kamo Village is being scoped out.
