Project introduction

A new interchange at the Western Hutt/Haywards Hill roads (State Highway 2/State Highway 58) intersection, and also includes realignment of the Manor Park highway connection, McDougall Grove and Hebden Crescent, a park and-ride car park and a pedestrian bridge to Manor Park Rail Station.

  • Estimated project cost

    $43 million
  • Project type

    Road improvements
  • Project status



To separate conflicting traffic flows on Western Hutt/Haywards Hill roads (State Highway 2/State Highway 58). The grade-separated interchange is similar to the Dowse interchange further south on State Highway 2. 


The interchange will improve safety, traffic flows and access to Manor Park train station, as well as providing a dedicated bus stop and park and ride carpark. It will also provide improved access to Hebden Crescent and Belmont Regional Park, safer access to Manor Park Road, McDougall and Annabell Groves, and a safer and less severe alignment for motorists descending to State Highway 2 from State Highway 58.

Haywards Interchange officially open

On Thursday 3 August, Transport Minister Simon Bridges cut the ribbon to mark the operational completion of the $43 million State Highway 2/58 Haywards Interchange project. Read the full article.(external link)

About the project

A grade-separated interchange at the intersection of State Highway 2 and State Highway 58; a new carpark with approximately 40 spaces to replace the existing informal carpark; replacement of the existing underpass with a footbridge across SH2 to Manor Park Road and Manor Park Station. Realignment work will be carried out on the Manor Park highway connection as well as Hebden Crescent and McDougal Grove.

Access to Belmont Regional Park

Once the new interchange is in use, and until all tie-ins are completed during May, visitors to the regional park at Dry Creek will not be able to access Hebden Crescent directly from State Highway 58.

  • Visitors from Porirua will use the roundabout, travel down State Highway 2 to Liverton Road, and drive north along Hebden Crescent
  • Visitors from Upper Hutt on State Highway 2 will travel south to Liverton Road and then drive north along Hebden Crescent
  • Access from Manor Park station will not be available until the northern shared cycle way and footpath is open in early June.
