Forging a path

Work continues apace on a new shared path at St Leonards near Dunedin.

Part of a $31million project to extend the West Harbour shared path 5km to Port Chalmers, improve safety on State Highway88 and realign the railway line, this stage of the work involves moving railway track between St Leonards and Curles Point to accommodate the shared path.

Both road and rail traffic are experiencing disruptions at the weekends while large portions of the work are done during the quieter periods for traffic.
