Hutt Corridor Plan confirms importance of fixing the Gap

Greater Wellington Regional Council have published the final version of the Hutt Corridor Plan. This includes fixing the Petone – Ngauranga gap as a high priority. Good news is that proposed changes to the rail line could be done in conjunction with upgrading the cycling/walking track “providing an improved width along the existing walk/cycle path on the SH2 side of the rail between Ngauranga and Horokiwi – or developing a shared, sealed pathway on the seaward side of the rail from Ngauranga to Horokiwi and on to Petone (that could also be utilised for rail maintenance vehicles when required)”

This is good news, particularly if a seaward side route is chosen, which would be far more attractive, and in keeping with the aims of Te Aranui o Pōneke/ Great Harbour Way.
