This project is on hold while we develop a parking management plan for the wider Newtown area.
Funding to develop and trial some changes on lower Wilson Street was approved through Waka Kotahi NZ Transport Agency's Innovating Streets programme in 2020.
A contra-flow bike lane was proposed for the street as part of developing a safer connection between Kilbirnie and the Newtown shops in 2018. Find out more about the 2018 options.
Using the Innovating Streets way of working, we would involve the community to try different ways of making it safer and nicer for people walking or biking between Kilbirnie and Newtown, while retaining car access for people who live here.
