Te Whau Pathway has been shortlisted for the World Architecture Festival in the Infrastructure – Future Project category. Te Whau Pathway is a 12km shared cycling and walking greenway on the western edge of the Whau River linking the Manukau and Waitematā Harbours. It travels from Te Atatu to Green Bay, offering better access to the Whau River and providing new cycling and walking opportunities for Aucklanders.

There are 536 projects from 81 countries shortlisted across 39 categories in the World Architecture Festival this year. Winners will be announced in November and will go on to compete for the World Building of the Year award or the Future Project of the Year award. See a full list of shortlisted projects here.

Delivered by Jasmax and Monk Mackenzie with MWH Stantec, in consortium, Te Whau Pathway Project is a collaborative partnership between Auckland Council, the Whau and Henderson-Massey Local Boards, Auckland Transport, Te Kawerau a Maki, Ngāti Whātua Ōrākei and the Whau Coastal Walkway Environmental Trust.

Construction began in 2015; the entirety of the pathway is expected to be completed in five-eight years.
