The Wellington City’s Maori Heritage Trail is marked by Pou, distinctive red marker poles, and several of these are on Te Aranui o Pōneke. Good news is that WCC is providing new information signs to explain the significance of the places to local iwi.
Thanks to everyone who submitted on the Draft Hutt Corridor Plan, supporting GHW submission in favour of fixing the Petone-Ngauranga Gap.
The GWRC is hearing oral submissions at the moment, but the officials’ report and recommendations looks hopeful; Recommendations include:
- “Request that NZTA consider an earlier timing for both the investigation
and construction of the Ngauranga to Petone walkway/cycleway
project, including bringing forward improvements to the existing
cycleway in advance of the new section.
- Add a new measure to read: ‘Continually look for opportunities to
improve cycling and walking facilities in the corridor consistent with
the vision of the Great Harbour Way’ “
