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.

These large invasive birds are a problem in the Wellington region because they eat and destroy newly germinated seedlings, which sometimes means entire crops need to be re-sown.
We need to protect our region’s environment and economic wellbeing from damage, which is why we aim to remove rooks from our region by 2029.
