Cycling Strategy for Mercury Bay

In 2019 Council adopted a Cycling Strategy for Mercury Bay  and funding was made available in the Long Term Plan for its implementation.

Due to delays with progress due to COVID-19, a Working Group of stakeholders and cycle groups was reformed and met to progress the plan in December 2021.

So far work has focused on cycling opportunities and projects for the Whitianga township.

We now want to get feedback from people in our district about any additional or amended cycling projects initiatives there are for the Township as well as the wider Mercury Bay.

You can download maps for Whitianga and the Mercury Bay ward. We encourage you to draw on write on them digitally or physically to show your suggestions and thoughts. 

You can e-mail your suggestions and thoughts to
