Experience the changes, then tell us what you think
We'll be working on designs now that we'll be able to share with the community later this year. We'll be seeking your feedback before taking the plans to Councillors for approval. If approved by Council, work to install this route with adaptable materials is likely to begin in 2023.
Once all the changes are in, we’ll be working hard to gather feedback on how it’s going and improve things such as signs, street markings, parking, and the position of dividers between the bike lanes and traffic. These improvements will need some time for people to adapt, particularly for people working in the Kaiwharawhara area. We'll be supporting businesses to work together to decide how they can collectively make the best use of the off-street parking available in the area.
The changes won’t be perfect or include much landscaping, but will enable more people to go by bike, e-scooter, or bus, while still leaving space for freight and people who need to drive. Based on feedback and data, more permanent changes will follow in the next 5-10 years.
