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.

"When photographing around Wellington, you just never know who, or what, is observing you! This Kaka came to check me out, when I was photographing the city from Te Ahumairangi Hill, last night."
Hi Neighbourly folk, have you spotted a kārearea lately? It is one of New Zealand's rarest birds but it is doing well in Wellington City.
If you have seen one, we would like to know where it was.
