What we're doing

The walking and cycling route through Taitā will connect residents with the heart of their community, recreational and community facilities, their local shops and businesses, schools and the arterial travel corridors alongside the rail and river trails.

The Taitā shared path will connect the railway station and shopping village with Walter Nash Park, where existing bike safety programmes are located.

Connections include:

  • The recently constructed Beltway Cycleway that links from the northern tip of Lower Hutt all the way through to Waterloo Station on the periphery of the CBD.
  • Taitā Station, linking north to Upper Hutt and Wairarapa and south to the Capital
  • Taitā’s shopping village to help revitalise local retailers and businesses
  • Walter Nash Centre and Taita Library
  • Netball Hutt Valley courts and the nearby Walter Nash Park
  • Local schools and kindergartens, such as St Michael’s school, Taitā Central School and Pomare School
  • Remutaka Cycle Trail (Hutt River Trail), providing a north / south corridor that’s perfect for people of all ages to build confidence on two wheels.

There  are also improvements and new pedestrian crossings proposed along Partridge Street for Pomare School.

Why Taitā?

Taitā is a fast-growing neighbourhood that includes key recreational and community facilities for the wider region, including Walter Nash Centre and Walter Nash Park.

A mix of private and Kainga Ora higher-density developments being built in Taitā have fewer carparks, encouraging more families and people to take up active and public travel options and live car-free lives.

We’ll be adding more information to our website including frequently asked questions and answers as the project progresses.
