Separated biking and walking paths
4m-wide bike path and 2m-wide footpath
About 70 new on-road car parks
Parking clearway 7am-9.30am
We’re improving the shared path along Hutt Road to make it safer for people on foot and on bikes. It's one of our busiest commuter routes and a crucial link in the region's wider cycle network. Work between Caltex Fuel Stop and the Tinakori Road intersection is almost complete. Work to widen the bridge over the Kaiwharawhara Stream is now expected to begin in late 2018 and will take about 4 months.
New on-street parking has been put in between Placemakers and Winger BMW and is now available at all times except during the busy morning peak (Monday to Friday, 7am to 9.30am) when a clearway operates. The clearway means there are still two lanes for traffic. After 9.30am, and at all times on weekends, people need to merge into one lane just after the pedestrian crossing near Placemakers. The new parking and clearway changes started on 30 April 2018. From this date, anyone who parks on the new footpath or bike path, or on the shared path north of Caltex Fuel Stop, risks being ticketed and towed.
The changes allow people on bikes and on foot to use the newly upgraded walking and cycle paths as intended, without having to negotiate vehicles parked on the footpath or watch for people driving or reversing along the path.
