Iconic design sought for Auckland Harbour Bridge's Pathway

Prominent Auckland architects, Copeland Associates, have been commissioned to create an iconic design for the Pathway proposed for the Auckland Harbour Bridge and Aucklanders are being invited to have their say.

GetAcross spokesperson Bevan Woodward says “Following NZTA’s agreement to the feasibility of the Pathway on the city-side of the Auckland Harbour Bridge, the concept design work can commence. We’re after an iconic design with the ‘wow!’ factor. We want to create a top 10 tourist attraction for the Auckland region and an asset all Aucklanders will be proud of.”
Hence we’re inviting Aucklanders to have their say on the Pathway’s design. They can do this by completing the online survey at www.getacross.org.nz.”

Copeland Associates director, Barry Copeland says “This is a waterfront project that ticks all the boxes for us. It requires innovative design thinking to allow access to New Zealand’s most iconic bridge for all Aucklanders and visitors to our city.  From an environmental, health, tourism and urban perspective, it is a winner.”

Bevan Woodward says “We’re excited to have Copeland Associates working on the design. They have great experience in this type of project and we’re eager to see what they come up with.”

Concept designs are expected to be made public in February. The Auckland Harbour Bridge Pathway project is working to a completion deadline in time for the Rugby World Cup.
