Featherston Street is a key route through the central city. It connects to Thorndon Quay and carries much of the traffic to and from the northern suburbs of Wellington and beyond. About 14,000 vehicles use this route every day with hundreds of people on bikes in the morning peak.
There is an existing city-bound bike lane on Featherston Street between Mulgrave Street and Bunny Street, and a new section of lane on the other side. During 2018 we extended the southbound bike lane from Bunny Street to Ballance Street to improve the experience for people cycling into and around the city. More green surfacing will be added when the weather warms up. Changes to make the intersection with Mulgrave Street safer are also planned.
