Hutt Road pedestrian crossing

Simone Borgstede from Wellington City Council

We are carrying out minor safety improvements to the Hutt Road pedestrian crossing with construction starting today on 27 October 2020 and estimated to finish in late November.

Improvements to the existing Hutt Road pedestrian crossing near Rangiora Avenue in Kaiwharawhara were last made nearly 20 years ago when it was converted to a two-stage pedestrian crossing. With the greater volume of traffic, there is a need to create better visibility of this crossing for both road users and pedestrians.

We are doing this by installing static and electronic warning signs and road markings and aim to complete the works with minimal disruption to the community.

Monday Sport Blast From The Past

Nicholas Boyack Reporter from Community News

Gordon Llewellyn is a name you have probably never heard off but he played a pivotal role in the birth of the Special Olympics movement in New Zealand.
In 1983, he and three other Hutt athletes – Colin Bailey, Peter Spijkerman and Brent Busy – made history when they attended the Summer Special Olympics in Baton Rouge, Louisiana.
The trip was organised by Grant Quinn, who later said Gordon Llewellyn proved the perfect poster boy for the Special Olympics movement in New Zealand.
Llewellyn was a larger than life character with a bold personality and a fascination with the TV character Magnum PI.
Years later Quinn recalled the flight over and an announcement that came over the intercom.
"This is your captain speaking … I have a very special passenger with me in the cockpit. His name is Gordon Llewellyn from New Zealand."
Llewellyn quickly took over the microphone and proceeded to entertain the whole plane.
"Next minute Gordon was asking, or should I say demanding, that everybody on board give the team a rousing three cheers to wish the team a successful time in Baton Rouge," recalled Quinn.
The team performed well at the Olympics and athletes returned home heroes, proudly wearing their medals for weeks to make sure nobody missed their success.
Llewellyn died in August 2014 and Quinn gave the eulogy. He told mourners that Llewellyn and the other three Hutt swimmers had changed the public's perception of the intellectually disabled.
They had helped win mainstream acceptance and played a key role in promoting an organisation that now had more than 7000 active members.
