The Peninsula Connection will widen Portobello and Harington Point roads to make them safer and more attractive for everyone who uses the road – locals, visitors, cyclists, walkers and runners, drivers and nearby residents and businesses.
The Peninsula road is narrow and winding, with little room for pedestrians and cyclists. Most of the road is bound by the harbour and seawall on one side and land on the other. The road will be widened and raised, a new rock seawall built and a shared path for pedestrians and cyclists created. The work will include seating, planting and rest areas.
At the start of the project, the Peninsula road was divided into sections to be widened in stages. Half of these have now been widened, mostly by reclaiming six metres of the harbour. The map below shows where each section is.
Work on the section between Turnbulls Bay and Portobello started in April 2018 and is expected to take a year.
Throughout design and construction, we will give people opportunities to engage in the process by providing regular updates on the DCC website, through emails and local newsletters and at public open days.
