New bike parking area                                

We will be installing a new bike parking area in Grey Street (next to the public toilets and showers) in mid-2018.  A glass bus-stop style shelter will be installed with a Dutch two-tier rack inside. This will provide covered parking for about 60 bikes.
 

What's changing

  • The motorbike parking in this spot will move just around the corner to Featherston Street, adjacent to the existing motorbike parking (there will still be parking for about 18 motorbikes).
  • Two 2-hour pay-and-display car parking spaces on Featherston Street will be removed to provide space for the motorbikes.

  

How this will help

  • Providing safe and convenient bike parking is one of the cheapest and easiest ways to support cycling as a travel choice.
  • It provides an essential facility, and more bikes in public places helps to encourage more people to cycle.
  • This is one of a series of planned changes to improve connections and make it safer and easier for people to get places in the central city by bike.  
  • Incremental changes like these – combined with the more substantial changes likely through the Let’s Get Wellington Moving project – will together help to create a better cycling network.

  

How we got here and next steps

  • The feedback period on the traffic changes (resolutions) related to this proposal was 25 July to 11 August 2017.
  • Councillors approved the proposal on 14 September 2017.
  • Other changes recommended by the Central City Area Working Group are being considered. Some – including improvements to crossings to the waterfront – may happen as part of routine upgrade programmes. Others will require traffic resolutions that will be advertised at a later date.
