preparing for the future
We’ve now got a plan that sets out how the St Clair – St Kilda coast will need to adapt, over time, to the effects of coastal hazards and climate change.
Whakahekerau – Rakiātea Rautaki Tai, St Clair – St Kilda Coastal Plan represents a significant change in the way we look after this valued area. As part of the plan, we’ll be investigating the old Kettle Park landfill and looking to make improvements to beach access at St Clair.

With plans for park and ride facilities south of the city, opening the old railway tunnels between Mosgiel and Dunedin creates the opportunity for a trail that connects the central city to Mosgiel.
The Tunnels Trail would form part of our integrated cycle network, linking Dunedin suburbs, like Mosgiel, to the city centre. This 15km, off-road trail will provide a safe, accessible route, offering people an alternative way to travel and supporting our zero carbon goals.
The trail will also connect to regional cycle networks, starting with the Mosgiel to Waihola route.
