Ruahine Street footbridge strengthening

In July 2020, we strengthened the Ruahine Street footbridge to make it safer for pedestrians.

The Ruahine Street footbridge in Hataitai connects pedestrians from the Hataitai Village to the Hataitai sports fields and required strengthening to ensure it’s a safe structure for pedestrians to use. 

The footbridge spans Ruahine Street/State Highway 1 (managed by NZTA) which is a busy urban arterial route to the Wellington Airport and the eastern suburbs. 

Strengthening work started on Monday 22 June and was completed on Friday 10 July 2020.
