A city fit for the future

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.

What this project involves

We are starting plans to make changes to transport between Berhampore and Newtown. The areas we're focused on include: 

  • installing bus and bike improvements to complete the south coast to city route
  • setting up a parking plan for Newtown.

We're also working with the community to improve Berhampore shopping area.

How to be involved

We’re working with technical experts and meeting with key stakeholders and businesses in this area to help inform the proposed changes.

As part of helping us understand the local context, we are keen to learn about how you and your whānau use and experience this area. Your feedback will help us to get the designs right and evaluate the changes. We’ll also be gathering data about numbers of people on bikes, scooters and buses, and monitoring the parking situation. 

Stay in touch and get involved

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.
