Better access to Manor Park Station with expanded Park and Ride

Transport Minister Simon Bridges has "cut the ribbon" officially marking the completion of the $43 million State Highway 2/58 Haywards Interchange project on Thursday, 3rd August.

This project not only delivers benefits for motorists but for train and bus commuters, and cyclists.

It includes:

  • Better access to Manor Park Station including a new pedestrian bridge
  • 44 Park and Ride spaces for commuters to leave the car and hop on the train.
  • 24-hour CCTV monitoring of the station and Park and Ride spaces
  • A dedicated bus stop
  • Cycleway that is separated from State Highway 2

This provides Upper Hutt residents with real transport choices for their commute to and from Wellington City.

From a Greater Wellington Regional Council perspective it also delivers better access for Wellingtonians using Belmont Regional Park:

  • Visitors from Porirua will use the roundabout, travel down State Highway 2 to Liverton Road, and drive north along Hebden Crescent
  • Visitors from Upper Hutt on State Highway 2 will travel south to Liverton Road and then drive north along Hebden Crescent

NZTA have produced a flyover video of the completed project:
