The route - the most important connections
This 2.9km route will make it easier for more people to bike/scoot from the Hutt Road up Kaiwharawhara Road and Ngaio Gorge Road to Crofton Road, and up Cameron Street to the Kaiwharawhara Bridle Path.
We are planning to take a staged approach to installing the route between 2023 and 2025, as the proposed changes will have impacts on parking. We want to support businesses by giving them time to adapt through the transition, as there are limited alternative carparking options.
We would use adaptable materials so we can quickly install changes if the design is approved. This means people can start using the route sooner, then make suggestions to help refine the designs once they’re installed. Making changes in this way will help to get the bike network in place as quickly as possible so more people can benefit.
The changes we’re looking at right now will be interim improvements – so they won’t be perfect or include much landscaping but will make it safer, easier and quicker for more people to walk, bike, or bus. The designs have been developed with technical experts and have incorporated feedback from key stakeholders and businesses along the route.
Overall, the changes along these streets will make things safer and easier for people using this busy route and provide more options for how people can get to and from work, school, or tertiary study, drop kids at day care, visit local shops or sports and recreation.
