We will be creating some new on-road parking between Winger BMW and Placemakers, and then phasing out the informal footpath parking that happens on the footpath in this section.
The informal footpath parking is being progressively phased out as it isn’t safe to have people driving along the bike path and footpath to park. To assist businesses, we proposed some new on-road parking for their customers and those who work in the area who have to travel by car. This has now been approved by Councillors and will be installed in March/April 2018.
We will be widening and upgrading 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.
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 the Aotea Quay overbridge. Upgrading and widening the shared path in this location 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.
