Valid from: 03/08/2017 11:00am
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.
- 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:
