The Upper Hutt City Council’s Roading division is responsible for the land transport activity and covers management of all land transport matters, including the city’s network of local roads.  Part of Council’s function is to ensure that the residents and visitors to Upper Hutt can move freely, efficiently and safely throughout the city.

Safety of all road users is a paramount concern of Council. Council works in conjunction with the NZ Police, the New Zealand Transport Agency, ACC, schools and community groups on road safety initiatives that work towards the New Zealand Safer Journeys vision of ‘A safe road system increasingly free of death and serious injury’.

For more links to roading information are provided in the Resources and Links section.
