Rangiora Avenue footpath works

We have carried out footpath upgrades on Rangiora Avenue in Kaiwharawhara.

About the project

The upgrades include:

  • installing a new footpath
  • constructing a new 40m long retaining wall
  • constructing a new staircase
  • installing handrails
  • new road marking and priority control at the narrow section of Rangiora Avenue
  • improving traffic flow by installing ‘No Stopping At All Times’ restrictions. 


May 2021

After our planting work we started construction of the staircase to connect Rangiora Avenue with Hutt Road.
As weather allows we will continue working on the steep slope to construct the staircase and this is due for completion by the end of May.

February-March 2021 

The new alignment required the removal of one tree, and we planted another tree in its place. We also removed several pest plants in the area.

November 2020

We redesigned the staircase alignment to ensure the protection of several Pohutukawa trees on the slope.
