WIN Wellington are delighted to invite you to a presentation and site visit about the Eastern Porirua Development. The Porirua Development was announced in November 2018 to replace 2,000 existing state homes with new homes over a 20-year period, alongside bulk infrastructure improvements.
The project objectives are to rejuvenate and increase state housing stock to deliver safe homes, provide additional housing stock to alleviate the housing crisis and uplift the wellbeing of the Porirua community. The project is being delivered by the Te Aranga Alliance for Kāinga Ora and Porirua City Council.
Transport will be provided to the site, meet outside 38 Willis Street at 1:30 pm. Drinks and nibbles will be provided, thanks to the event sponsors Te Aranga and KPMG.
SH58 is a regional route providing critical east-west access from SH 2 to SH 1 and is key to the region’s state highway network. Over 19,000 vehicles travel this highway daily. It is narrow and windy with many unprotected roadside hazards. The SH58 upgrade is a safety focused project including speed limit changes, curve realignment, safety barrier installation, and intersection upgrades. Stage 1 (SH 2 to Mount Cecil Road) was completed in late 2021, Stage 2A (Mount Cecil Road to Harris Road) is due for completion at the end of this year, and Stage 2B (Harris Road to Transmission Gully) will be starting construction in 2023. The project is being delivered by Waka Kotahi, Stantec and Downer.
We will be joined by Te Aranga Alliance Board member Tracey Haszard who will provide an overview of the project and share her experience and the diversity she brings to the project. Tracey is a civil engineer and senior principle at BECA and has been a long-standing WIN Advisory Board member.
On the way to the visit we will be joined by Courtney McCrostie, Stantec Transport Engineer. Courtney will share her experience and provide an overview of work on State Highway 58. Courtney is a civil engineer with experience in the construction, maintenance and management of roading networks, and has worked on many aspects of transport including road safety, resilience, and transport planning.
