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.

Poll: Is this an appropriate way for a mayor to behave?

Nicholas Boyack Reporter from Community News

Wellington Mayor Andy Foster was photographed on Sunday helping pitch a tent in Shelly Bay.
The tent belonged to Anaru Mepham, from Mau Whenua, group opposing the controversial Shelly Bay development. Mepham described himself as a sentry for protesters who are standing by to join him if the bulldozers moved in.
Wellington City Council earlier this month voted nine votes to six to sell and lease its land at Shelly Bay to Shelly Bay Taikuru, owned by developer Ian Cassels and his partner.
Foster campaigned on the promise to stop the development, which is also opposed by Sir Peter Jackson.
