THE LINK PATHWAY
The Link Pathway is a community project to create a 42 kilometre walk / cycle path that links Picton and Havelock in the Marlborough Sounds, NZ.
The Link Pathway project began in 2005 with a desire by Inner Marlborough Sounds residents to see pathways established between local communities. As initial pathways were created the vision grew to build a continuous high-standard pathway on public land between Havelock and Picton, that included Anakiwa. This will effectively extend the existing popular Queen Charlotte Track, and link it directly to Picton and the inter-island ferries, and thus the Link Pathway project took on regional and national significance.
As survey work gathered momentum, four sections of abandoned historic bridle path were re-discovered that had been constructed over 150 years ago, and lain forgotten for 100 years. Comprising 20% of the total Link Pathway, these add a significant heritage status to the project.
By late 2015, almost half of the entire Link Pathway was constructed, with work increasing in momentum towards a total completion date of Jan 15, 2020, to coincide with the 250th anniversary of Captain Cook arriving in the Marlborough Sounds.
Work is progressing in stages, with individual sections of pathway being opened as they are completed.
