Phase Construction
Activity Building a walking and cycling path 

This multi-agency project involves Greater Wellington, Hutt City Council, Wellington Water and Waka Kotahi.  

Greater Wellington and Hutt City Council have declared a climate emergency and are committed to reducing greenhouse gas emissions to support the national Net Zero New Zealand 2050 climate goal.  

Making it easy for more people to walk or cycle to the places that matter to them is one way we can help support wider emission reduction goals. 


Work on this Active Transport project began early September 2021 and is set to finish in December 2021. Active Transport means using physical activity as a means of transport, not just for recreation. It’s good for you, and good for the environment. 

This project will complete the Hutt River Trail along the western side of Te Awa Kairangi/Hutt River. It will connect Petone/Lower Hutt with Upper Hutt.  

In time, with the construction of the Te Ara Tupua (coastal cycleway), Wellington to Upper Hutt will be fully connected, via the Hutt River Trail.
