Driver safety was the focus of the Haywards interchange

The project called for innovative ways to add value to the basic grade-separated interchange.

This project was all about ‘value through collaboration’. Our design team worked closely with the Urban Design Manager of Hutt City Council, and engaged with local artist and sculptor Guy Ngan to refine the strategic approach to the visual design.

Opus' approach was two-fold:

  • People and partnerships – Involving and engaging the right people and skills at the right time resulted in great ideas and the ability for people to be involved up front to make the difference when needed.
  • Creating change – Taking key stakeholder on a journey with the team and sharing information to achieve agreement.
