Section 1: Between Rangiora Avenue and Westminster Street
New on-road parking

We propose to create some new on-road parking between Winger BMW and Placemakers, as the informal footpath parking along the new section of the Hutt Road pathway is being phased out.

 Hutt Road clearways

Why this solution?

The informal footpath parking along the new section of the Hutt Road pathway is being phased out over the coming months as it isn’t safe to have people driving along the bike path and footpath to park. To  assist businesses, we propose to create some new on-road parking for their customers and those who work in the area who have to travel by car.

Impacts:
  • About 70 new on-street car parking spaces north of Westminster Street, between Winger BMW and Placemakers’ driveway
  • This parking would be available at all times except during the busy morning peak, with a clearway in place from 7am-9.30am
  • The transition from two traffic lanes to one lane will need to be addressed 
  • There would still be two lanes for traffic during the morning clearway (no T2 or bus lanes are proposed at this stage) 
  • At this stage, the parking will not be time restricted, and no charges are proposed
  • In Westminster Street the P60 restriction would apply from 9am-6pm, rather than 8am-6pm as it does now
Section 2: Between Aotea Quay overbridge and Tinakori Road
Hutt Road separated pathways

We propose to widen and upgrade the shared path between Aotea Quay overbridge and Tinakori Road intersection, to create separated biking and walking paths using the Council-owned road reserve land alongside the existing pathway. At Guthrie Bowron riders will use the existing ramp onto the road.

Hutt Road path overview

Why this solution?

Creating separated paths here will greatly improve safety for people commuting by bike or on foot, and connect to the paths now being built north of Aotea Quay. Upgrading and widening the shared path can be done without affecting the traffic lanes, painted median, turning bays or on-street car parking. New street lights have already been installed along this stretch of Hutt Road.

Impacts:
  • Separated, wider paths for people walking and biking
  • Paths resurfaced with asphalt and concrete
  • No changes to the traffic lanes, painted median or turning bays
  • No changes to on-street parking
  • One business will lose their encroachment on Council-owned land
