What are the benefits of the revised concept interchange design for road users?

  • A grade separated interchange between through traffic on State Highway 2, and those travelling to/ from Te Awa Kairangi ki Tai – Lower Hutt and the Western Hills will enable more efficient travel during peak periods to help move people and freight along smoothly.
  • This design enables higher volumes of traffic to safely flow through the interchange.
  • Improved safety for all road users by:
    • Removing the existing conflicting right-hand turn movement from SH2 northbound, and the right-hand turn from the new Melling Link river bridge to SH2 northbound.
    • Reducing the risk of accidental right hand turns onto SH2 ramps, or straight through movements from Marsden Street onto the southbound SH2 off ramp, an improvement over the previous design.
