The pathway features a large pink Māori design on the road surface, black metal pou (land markers), and carved laser-cut designs along its western side. LED lights line the safety barriers and pulse as people pass them, making the path just as vibrant at night.
Te Ara I Whiti was named among the supreme winners at the 2016 New Zealand Best Design Awards and received a transport category award at the 2016 World Architecture Festival in Berlin.
