Wellingtonians have been very clear they want action on climate change, more housing choices, and a city where more people can get around in zero or low carbon ways.
Berhampore and Newtown are busy inner-city suburbs with a high density of people living here. The area is a key destination for many Wellingtonians – people looking for a great place to live close to the central city and Wellington Hospital’s campus, people working at hospitals and health services, visiting patients, or getting to appointments, commuting to work or university, visiting the vibrant town centres, and getting to parks, sportsgrounds, and Wellington Zoo.
Using funding from Waka Kotahi NZ Transport Agency, we’re looking at how we can share the street space in different ways in Berhampore and Newtown to give residents and visitors better transport options. This aligns with the bus and bike improvements already being installed between Newtown and the city. We’re planning similar changes on Adelaide Road and Luxford, Rintoul and Riddiford streets.Read more
We’re updating the systems and technology we use to manage the city’s parking. Parking plans will be developed for areas like Newtown where the street space is changing and there is high local demand for on-street parking.Read more
We're looking at ways to enhance Berhampore shopping area to support local businesses and make it more appealing and accessible. This design development will continue the work started with the community in 2018.Read more
We're keen to involve the community as we go, so we will be sending updates when there are opportunities to get involved or have your say.
