There are three options - different packages of routes and street changes - that we want feedback on. They are intended to get people thinking and talking about the best way to develop a proposed network in your area, so we can then develop a recommended option. This may well be a mix of the different packages under discussion - so let us know what you think.
None of the options are at the detailed design stage yet, and no decisions have been made - so it’s a very good time to get involved, consider the possibilities and provide feedback. Community objectives were developed in the last round of engagement.
The transport improvements illustrated in this engagement will integrate with the work of Let's Get Wellington Moving. Parts of the Newtown Connections area are likely to be impacted by transport changes recommended in the future by Let’s Get Wellington Moving.
The Newtown Connections project is primarily about providing safer routes and connections for people on bikes.
Once routes are determined next year, we will also look at what other changes could be made at the same time in these streets to make them more appealing for people walking and getting on and off buses.
Looking ahead, there are other routes that could be added to connect the wider Newtown area in the future with other destinations and areas in the southern suburbs.
