The content on this page was accurate at the time of the traffic resolution consultation, and some changes were made to the project as a result of community feedback. We've kept this page to make sure we are being transparent about our process and to show how the project has developed. The main project page is the most up to date place, and more information about the Council's decision can be found in the meeting minutes.
The changes along these streets will make things safer and easier for everyone – whether you’re walking, riding a bike/scooter, catching the bus or driving.
The changes along these streets will make things safer and easier for everyone.
1 / 6
Pedestrian safety and accessibility will be improved.
2 / 6
These changes will create a safer route and better facilities for people riding bikes.
Cycle shoulders are a trial design from Waka Kotahi developed as a way to improve safety for people on bikes on particularly narrow and/or windy roads like we have in Wellington. Cycle shoulders are narrower than the standard bike lane width (1.5m), and include broken yellow lines by the kerb, and a dashed white line at the edge of the vehicle lane which illustrates it is legal for people driving to move into this space if required to avoid oncoming traffic. These may be accompanied by some green markings or cycle symbols where appropriate.
3 / 6
Bus journeys will be quicker and easier.
4 / 6
With more separation between bikes/scooters and traffic, this route will be safer and easier for drivers.
5 / 6
Lower speed limits will improve safety for everyone.
Waka Kotahi NZ Transport Agency will make the decision on this proposed speed limit change under a different traffic law and your feedback will be considered by them. We’re asking for feedback on it now as it’s likely all these proposed changes would happen at the same time.

From June 2022, we began engaging with residents and businesses about planned improvements for people walking, riding or using buses along this route.
Following discussions with groups in the community and stakeholders, we included the following changes in our proposed designs:
As part of our engagement, we’ve worked closely with groups in the community and stakeholders to make changes to the proposed design.
These groups included:
Our proposal is for an uphill bike lane that would be installed in three stages over two years, alongside other changes that will make it safer and easier for people to walk, use car share and buses.
For a full breakdown of the proposed changes involved at each stage, see staged approach.
