About the project

Physical works on the project to improve the resilience of the Eastern Hutt Road corridor, valued at $27.5 million, began in July 2023. The comprehensive remediation works included fixing three major slip sites above the road and future-proofing them against any future slips.

Eastern Hutt Road fully re-opened on 15 March 2024. See Eastern Hutt Road Reopens for more information on this significant milestone.

Further work is underway to identify a programme of works to improve resilience of the wider corridor.
