August 2017 August construction update

We are now working in two locations along Hutt Road – near Geeves and Placemakers.

Progress has been slower than expected over the past few months because of all the wet weather so we’ve brought in a second construction gang to help make up for lost time.

Both teams will continue to carry out the work in sections, with the original gang heading north towards Spotlight, and the new one heading south from the Caltex Fuel Stop end.

Work near Placemakers will be carried out in two phases between mid-August and late October.  It will include laying new kerbs, concrete and asphalt, and developing a new bus stop and lay-by a little north of the existing stop and closer to the pedestrian crossing. The existing shelter will be moved and refurbished.

We had to delay laying the new asphalt near Ablaze until the ground had dried out, but hope to seal this area towards the end of August.

In the meantime, we have been working on a new retaining wall adjacent to Geeves so their parking can be accommodated within their yard.  Once it is complete, we’ll lay the new concrete path through here, and then the new kerb and asphalt.

The continuing wet weather has made it difficult to predict how long work will take in each location, but we are hoping to complete the area near Geeves in mid-September.

July 2017 July construction update More Less

Upgrade work is complete between Aotea Quay overbridge and the Goods Shed Garden Supplies. People using this route can now see the quality of surfacing that will be going in as far as the Caltex Fuel Stop as part of this project.

Work is under way in the next section between the Goods Shed and Ablaze too, though progress has been slower than we would have liked due to all the wet and stormy weather.

Weather permitting, we now plan to pour the new kerbs and asphalt in this section during the first two weeks of August.

At the same time, the contractors will begin working between Ablaze and Geeves Scaffolding.

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. Weekend work may happen at times.

June 2017 June construction update More Less

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.

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.
