North Harbour BMX is one of three sports clubs (along with Rosedale Pony Club and Harbour Hockey) that will be relocated by the Northern Corridor Improvements (NCI) project team to make way for the new motorway. After extensive investigation and consultation with all affected sports clubs, council and the local community, the proposal to relocate all three clubs was approved in December 2017(external link). It was decided that the best option was to relocate Harbour Hockey within Rosedale Park to the current BMX site, and relocate North Harbour BMX and Rosedale Pony Club.
The NZ Transport Agency has committed funding to the development of three new facilities for the respective sports clubs.
New BMX facility
The new North Harbour BMX site has been built at Hooton Reserve and includes a professional track with an 8m ramp and berm jump giving it the ability to host international events and an amateur track with a 5m ramp with rhythm section for aspiring BMX riders.
The new track surface, floodlights lockable gate and fencing will provide riders with more time to safely enjoy the facilities.
