A proposed 6.5-kilometre coastal pathway between Ferrymead and Scarborough that could attract more than a million users is likely to cost about $26 million.

The figure is from Wellington landscape architects Wraight and Associates, which were commissioned by the Christchurch City Council and the Christchurch Coastal Pathway Group to produce a concept plan.

Under the plan the path would be four metres wide and snake along the Avon-Heathcote Estuary beside tidal mudflats, through a reinstated beach in Redcliffs, along boardwalks on Moncks Bay’s frontages and across the beaches at Sumner.

It would be for pedestrians and cyclists and provide access to areas of the coastline previously off-limits.

The pathway is a long-held ambition of the Mt Pleasant, Redcliffs and Sumner communities, but until now there has not been a unified vision for it.
