Cyclists will have additional spots to lock up their bikes with new facilities installed as part of a cycleway trial.
Project WAVE is a $1 million cycleway trial in the Viaduct Harbour to connect the Quay and Nelson Street cycleways that could have over a thousand daily users.
Auckland Transport (AT) confirmed two new bike parking facilities able to accommodate 16 bikes have been installed as part of the trial, taking the total number of bike parks along the cycleway to 56.
The project is opposed by a group of residents and business owners.
The two new bike parking facilities are located on Customs Street West between Market Place and Lower Hobson Street. One is located near the Tepid Baths, and one is near O’Hagan’s bar.
The area now has enough space for around 56 bikes, as there were already existing facilities to accommodate 40 bikes before Project WAVE was implemented.
AT spokeswoman Natalie Polley said there are also numerous new bike parking facilities on Quay Street and in the new square as part of the Downtown project.
"That doesn’t even take into account bike parking at the ferry terminal, the AT Downtown Carpark and at many other locations on the Viaduct,” she said.

Did you use to belong to the 1st Auckland Cavell Girl Guide Unit?
If so, the brigade wants to hear from you!
The 1st Auckland Cavell Girl Guide Unit turns 100 in July and is still seeking old girls to join the celebrations.
One of the first girl guide units to be formed in Auckland, the group is gearing up to commemorate its centenary.
A social afternoon is planned for July 3, kicking off at 2pm with historic guiding activities such as knot tying and making arm slings.
Guests will be treated to afternoon tea and a birthday cake before photographs are taken of the girls.
The day will end with a singalong around the campfire.
The next day, a church parade will march through St Andrews Church, Epsom, where the unit has been meeting since 1921.
Parishioners are invited to a morning tea after the procession.
The unit, initially known as the St Andrew's Peace Scout Group, is believed to be the first guide company which has kept going since it was launched.
It all started when eighteen-year-old Mona Burgin wrote to the Dominion chief scout Colonel Cosgrove, a New Zealand Boer War veteran, asking about Girl Peace Scouts.
He arranged to meet her in Queen St, Auckland and wrote she would recognize him by the red flower in his buttonhole.
Soon after the meeting Burgin formed the troop on July 6.
Girl Peace Scouts wore khaki uniforms and the St Andrews troop wore a red open-ended tie.
In 1923, the Dominion Council became affiliated with the original Girls Guides Association in London.

The Albert-Eden Local Board chair is set to change on May 22.
Lee Corrick will assume duties as chair and Margi Watson will become deputy chair.
Outgoing chair Margi Watson said it had been her privilege to serve the Albert-Eden communities.
"Over this duration we have achieved good outcomes for the area in spite of the challenges COVID-19 brought and I’m proud of the work we have done.
"... I'm looking forward to supporting Lee in her new role and continuing to work with her as deputy chair. "
It is not unusual for local boards to share roles throughout the three-year term, Auckland Council said.
