Safety in a Shared Space
The Westhaven Promenade is now open for all to enjoy. The promenade and cycleway around Westhaven Marina means walking and cycling around the waterfront is now a lot easier, but it is important to remember it is a shared space.
Below are a few tips from Auckland Transport on how to "Share with Care" when you are out enjoying the Promenade.
Feet before wheels! Slower users have priority. You must give way to anyone who travels slower than you.
Keep left to give other users space and pass in single file.
Be alert to other users and your environment – especially if you are listening to music!
When approached, move to the left and allow others to pass.
If you hear a bell or voice behind you, move aside to let them through. Runners, Pass pedestrians with care.
