The five-kilo­me­tre walk­ing and cy­cling track link­ing Tawa and Porirua was opened on Sun­day.

The oc­ca­sion also marked the com­ple­tion of the up­grade of Grasslees Re­serve.

Welling­ton mayor Celia WadeBrown said the $4.5 mil­lion Tawa Val­ley Path­way, jointly funded by the coun­cil and NZ Trans­port Agency, was the coun­cil’s most sig­nif­i­cant cy­cling and walk­ing project so far.

The track pro­vides an off-road route from Kenepuru Rail­way Sta­tion in Porirua to Wil­low­bank Park at the south end of Tawa, pass­ing through sev­eral other parks, in­clud­ing Grasslees Re­serve.
