We are proposing to make Hutt Road safer for everyone by restricting right turns across the road. Find out how this might change your driving route.
Restricting right turns across Hutt road will help reduce conflict between motor vehicles, motorcyclists, cyclists and pedestrians. The proposed Aotea Quay roundabout will reduce the amount of freight and ferry traffic on Hutt Road by allowing these vehicles to stay on State Highway 1.
Watch the following videos to find out how your driving route may change.
Getting to and from the ferry terminal
To get to the ferry terminal at Kaiwharawhara from the north, vehicles will be able to use State Highway 1 instead of Hutt Road.
No right turns on Hutt Road
If you would normally turn right into or out of a property on Hutt Road between Aotea Quay and Ngauranga, where we are proposing a raised central median, you will need to use an alternative turning point. The animation below shows the turning locations for larger vehicles and smaller vehicles if no safe alternatives can be designed.
