We are always looking to improve the connections around our Smart Little City. One gap that was identified is the lack of a pathway along Poorman Valley Stream between Main Road Stoke and Neale Avenue.
THis gap will be filled with a new 2.5 metre wide shared path. This will run along the true left bank of the stream from Main Road Stoke (by the Countdown carpark), past the Whareama Rest Home through to Neale Ave.
This will create a connection between the popular recreation areas of Neale Reserve (and nearby sections of the Railway Reserve) and Isel Park and Greenmeadows Reserve. It will also allow for an off-road connection, all the way from Marsden Valley and out to the Great Taste Trail on Whakatu Drive.
