North Purimu Pathway
Planning started: January 2016
Construction expected to commence: 29 June 2016
Construction completed: August 2016
A limestone pathway was constructed on the western side of the Purimu Drain to link the current pathway network with Westshore and the Hawke’s Bay Airport via Tamatea and Prebensen Drive.
From the Orutu Drive roundabout, the pathway runs along the northern side of Prebensen Drive on Napier City Council-owned Lagoon Farm land, then onto the western side of the Hawke’s Bay Expressway, past the Council pump station, to join up with the existing pathway at the estuary.
The pathway also provides people a safer option for crossing Prebensen Drive.
The project cost approximately $180,000.
