19 April 2018 Evans Bay Parade (Kilbirnie) proposals approved by Councillors

Councillors on the City Strategy Committee approved plans for the new Kilbirnie bus hub and a two-way bike path on Evans Bay Parade in Kilbirnie.

5 April 2018 Opportunity to observe group discussions More Less

In February/March this year, Wellington City Council sought feedback on traffic changes (resolutions) required to develop bike paths and lanes on parts of Oriental Parade, Evans Bay Parade (Kilbirnie), and Thorndon Quay.

People who provided feedback and requested the opportunity to speak with Councillors will provide their oral submissions in group discussions at Wellington Central Library on Thursday 5 April in two sessions at 5pm and 6.30pm.

A gallery with limited seating will be available for any members of the public who would like to come along to observe the group discussions but not take part themselves.

19 March 2018: Consultation closes on Evans Bay Parade (Kilbirnie section) and traffic and parking changes for the proposed new bus hub

8 March 2018 Kilbirnie biking proposals approved by Councillors More Less

Councillors on the City Strategy Committee unanimously approved the proposed changes to:

  • Rongotai Road (Onepu Road to Te Whiti Street) – kerbside bike lanes
  • Te Whiti Street (Coutts Street to Rongotai Road) – adding more space between existing painted bike lanes and parked cars
  • Coutts Street (Te Whiti Street to the airport tunnel) – kerbside bike paths
  • Tirangi Road (Coutts Street to the Leonie Gill Pathway) – kerbside bike lanes
  • Crawford Road – uphill bike lane with raised buffer
  • Constable Street (Alexandra Road to Coromandel Street) – uphill bike lane
  • Coromandel Street (Coromandel Street to Riddiford Street) – sharrow road markings
  • Wilson Street two-way (Daniell Street to Coromandel Street) – sharrow road markings.

Detailed planning is under way and construction is expected to start in mid-2018.

Projects that won’t be going ahead at this stage
For now, Councillors have agreed we will not proceed with proposals for:

  • Yule Street
  • Wilson Street one-way (Daniell Street to Riddiford Street).

We will be painting sharrow road markings in the two-way sections of Wilson Street but won’t make any decisions on the one-way section until there has been more community discussion this year about other Newtown connections and routes.

The proposed layout for Yule Street wasn’t well supported during consultation, and only offered marginal benefits. Improvements planned for Te Whiti Street will provide a safe alternative route nearby.
