Section 2: Between Aotea Quay overbridge and Tinakori Road
Hutt Road separated pathways
We have widened and upgraded the shared path between Aotea Quay overbridge and Tinakori Road intersection, to create separate biking and walking paths using the Council-owned road reserve land alongside the old shared path.
Why this solution?
Creating separated paths here has greatly improved safety for people commuting by bike or on foot, and connects to the paths north of the Aotea Quay overbridge.
What the changes mean:
There are separated, wider paths for people walking and biking.
The paths have been resurfaced with asphalt and concrete.
There were no changes to on-street parking on this section.
How we got here and next steps
The feedback period on proposed traffic changes (resolutions) for this project was 26 September to 16 October 2017.
Councillors approved proposals to create the additional car parking and extend the upgrade of the pathway to the Tinakori Road intersection in late November 2017.
The upgrade work happening on Hutt Road was completed in late 2018 except for the widening of the Kaiwharawhara Stream bridge. Work on this began in late August 2019 and will take about two months.
