Update the existing shared path
Improved street lighting
Some car parks could be affected
Improved route for people on foot

Hutt Road is the first of two stages in Wellington’s Northern Connection between Bunny Street and Ngauranga. The second project is Thorndon Quay. The plan is that improvements along this route will connect to the central city and eventually all the way through to Melling in Lower Hutt.
