The NZ Transport Agency is partnering with Wellington City Council, Greater Wellington Regional Council and Hutt City Council to provide a safe and efficient 12-kilometre walking and cycling route between the Wellington CBD and Melling. The W2HV Link will also connect with other walking and cycling facilities such as the Petone Esplanade and the Hutt River Trail.
The project involves three sections:
- Wellington CBD to Ngauranga section – a Wellington City Council project is now complete. This cycling facility runs from Bunny Street along Thorndon Quay and Hutt Road to the Ngauranga interchange. This section was jointly funded by the Urban Cycleways Fund, the National Land Transport Fund and the Wellington City Council.
- Ngauranga to Petone section – an NZ Transport Agency project. This is a shared off-road path from the Ngauranga interchange to the Petone interchange. This section is jointly funded by the NZ Transport Agency, the Wellington City Council and the Greater Wellington Regional Council.
- Petone to Melling section – an NZ Transport Agency project. This is an off-road cycle path with shared path connections linking the Petone railway station to the Hutt River Trail.
