June 2017 June construction update

Work on the section between the Aotea Quay overbridge and the Goods Shed Garden Supplies driveway is continuing and should be finished by mid-June. New kerbs and concrete have been laid. Weather permitting, the asphalt will be poured here in the week starting 12 June. 

As work in this first section nears completion, contractors will make a start in the next section, which will go almost up to the Ablaze Firewood and Landscape Supplies driveway. They expect to be working in this area until about the end of June.

The contractors are working to provide a safe route through the construction area for people on foot and bikes, but please slow down as you ride through here and take extra care.

Some parking will be temporarily affected.

Work hours will generally be 7am-5pm, Monday to Friday. Occasionally work may happen on Saturdays.

Learn more about the sorts of things that you'll see happening as part of the upgrade and what to expect.  

May 2017 May construction update More Less

The upgrade of the shared path is under way. Work will be happening in the vicinity of the Aotea Quay overbridge from Monday 8 May.

The reconstruction is being done in sections and the initial work will occur between the overbridge (near the subway) and the entrance to the Goods Shed Garden Supplies. Weather depending, improving this section will take about three weeks.

A safe route through the construction area will be provided for people on foot and bikes.

Some of the parking in this area will be temporarily affected.

Work hours will generally be 7am-5pm, Monday to Friday. Occasionally work may happen on Saturdays.

April 2017 Construction under way

Preliminary site work for the first phase of improvements to the shared path began in April 2017. Construction will be in full swing from early May.

5 April 2017 Official launch of construction

The Minister of Transport, Hon Simon Bridges, and Wellington Mayor Justin Lester, broke the ground on the Hutt Road cycleway to mark the start of construction. 

31 January 2017 How we got here More Less

Hutt Road is one of the most popular cycling routes in Wellington. The shared path now carries twice as many people on bikes as 10 years ago, with 400 riding Hutt Road at peak hours.

The Hutt Road cycleway is a crucial link in the region's wider cycle network, providing connections to the Hutt Valley. But it has a poor safety track record and is one of our highest priorities for improvement.
