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’ve turned the shared path along Hutt Road into separate walking and biking paths. 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 completed except for widening the bridge over Kaiwharawhara Stream. We now expect the bridge work to happen in the first half of 2019 and take about 4 months. The timing is reliant on Mobil being able to move their fuel pipes under the bridge so the work can go ahead.
On-street parking has been put in between Placemakers and Winger BMW and is 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.
These changes have allowed people on bikes and on foot to use the 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.
