We're proposing an uphill bike lane that would be installed in three stages over two years, alongside other improvements to make it easier for people to walk, use car share, and buses. 

The first stage addresses safety concerns and provides better transport options for people that can help reduce the number of cars in the area over time, before further changes are made.  

Stage one - approximately June 2023

  • Extend the existing 30km/h zone on Aro Street by 150m from the School of Philosophy to Willis Street
  • Raise the pedestrian crossing on Aro Street by Aro Park
  • Install four speed humps along Aro Street
  • Add two new car share parking spaces on Epuni Street
  • Add one new mobility car park on Epuni Street
  • Mark car park spaces on Aro Street
  • Install 100m of the uphill separated bike lane from 171-197 Aro Street 
  • Install the uphill bike lanes and cycle shoulders along the top end of Aro Street from Holloway Road, on Raroa Road to Raroa Crescent
  • On Raroa Road, remove all on-street parking on the uphill side and at corners on the downhill side
  • Remove three coupon car parks on Aro Street
  • Introduce 35 residents car parks and 33 residents and P120 parks on Holloway Road
  • Widen the paths through Aro Park and along Little Palmer Lane, creating 2.5-metre-wide shared paths.

Stage two - Jan/Feb 2024

  • Install the remaining 400m of uphill bike lane from 117 Aro Street to Holloway Road 
  • Remove 48 coupon car parks on the south side of Aro Street.

Stage three - Jan/Feb 2025

  • Install the final section of bike lane on Aro Street, from Willis Street to the shops at Alameda Terrace 
  • Change 20 coupon car parks to residents parking on Ohiro Road at the Aro Street end
  • Remove 18 residents and four coupon car parks on the south side of Aro Street.
