Shared paths

Find out about the shared paths we're building so Hutt City residents can move through the city and reduce their carbon footprint.

Hutt City has a great natural environment and the evolving network of cycleways and shared paths is being developed to reduce emissions and traffic congestion, and provide safe and efficient connections across the city for walkers and cyclists.

The Manor Park Shared Path will complete a key section of the Hutt River Trail and create an important link to the Remutaka Cycle Trail.

Work on a 1.7 kilometre stretch of land between Manor Park Golf Sanctuary and the rail line, running from York Avenue to the Silverstream Rail Bridge, began on 1 September and is due to be completed by December 2021.

Te Hikoi Ararewa (The Wainuiomata Hill Shared Path) was officially opened in June 2019.

Te Hikoi Ararewa is a key project in providing a safe and integrated network for commuting and recreational purposes that will form part of a wider strategic network with future linkages to the Beltway Cycleway and the CBD.

It has many benefits for Hutt City residents, such as:

  • a safe environment for pedestrians and cyclists on a high speed road
  • safety improvements for road users including new LED lighting and roadside barriers
  • attractive facilities for new users
  • improved connectivity between Lower Hutt and Wainuiomata
  • increased active choices
  • improved access to existing mountain bike trails and walkways.
