Work on restoring the Onehunga Foreshore has been going on since December 2012 and is nearing completion with the area expected to be open in November. When complete there will be
- 6.8ha of new parkland
- a pedestrian and cycle bridge over SH20 linking the new foreshore to Onehunga Bay Reserve
- sandy and gravel/shell beaches
- a boat ramp
- pedestrian and cycle paths
- park facilities such as a toilet block, park furniture and carpark.
To show just how much the area has changed the two images below highlight what the area looked like before work started and as it was just a few months ago in July.
What a difference three years, more than 334,000 cubic metres of fill, 11,000 cubic metres of sand and 30,000 native plants make. There is also a timelapse and some aerial shots of the work below
I’m looking forward to this opening
