The road-separated route connects together the communities, schools and key facilities such as:
• the Auckland University Campus,
• Whangarei City Centre and
• Kensington Park.

The shared path is one of three (Onerahi, Raumanga, Kamo) designed to get more Whangarei people off the road and more able to move around by cycling or walking.

As well as creating safe links for school children and workers the routes should ease pressure on the city’s roads and increase health and wellbeing in the community.
