Phase Construction completed
Project status Trail re-opened
Activity Erosion protection

Severe weather in July 2021 eroded part of the popular Hutt River Trail near the Royal Wellington Golf Club in Upper Hutt.

We repaired the trail and re-opened it ahead of schedule on 24 December 2021, in time for walkers and cyclists to enjoy it during their summer holidays.

To help protect the riverbank from future erosion, we also:

  • built rock groynes (structures built out from the riverbank into the river)
  • strengthened 320 metres of riverbank.

Further remedial work and planting will take place in 2022.
