Tupua Horo Nuku, the Eastern Bays Shared Path (update from HCC)

Exciting times ahead !

We are nearing the start of construction on Tupua Horo Nuku, the Eastern Bays Shared Path which will create a safer environment for walking and cycling around the bays, enabling more active transport to reduce our carbon emissions. The construction will also improve the resilience of the road to help combat sea level rise and climate change.

Our partners spoke about the significance of the project and the changes it will bring at an event earlier this year to announce the name ‘Tupua Horo Nuku’, which has been gifted to the shared path by Mana Whenua.

Construction will begin in August. Check out the video, and visit the project website for more information and to subscribe for email updates from the project team: hutt.city/tupuahoronuku

Hutt City Council is working in partnership with iwi mana whenua – Taranaki Whānui ki te Upoko o te Ika, and Ngāti Toa Rangatira, on this project and construction is being delivered by Te Ara Tupua Alliance. The project has received funding from the Government’s Infrastructure Reference Group COVID-19 Recovery Fund, in combination with matched funding from Waka Kotahi and Hutt City Council.
