The parents of a motorcyclist who died in a crash on State Highway 2 say it shouldn’t have taken their daughter’s death for authorities to upgrade an “inherently dangerous” intersection.

The comments come following an announcement by Remutaka MP Chris Hipkins that the intersection on Moonshine Hill Rd and SH2 in Upper Hutt would be improved.

Rachel Pawsey, 30, died at the intersection when her motorcycle crashed with a car in August. Safety upgrades would likely include a median and side barriers, extra traffic lights, and raised safety platforms. Hipkins said consultation on a new speed limit will happen this year.
