We're installing uphill bike lanes in two stages, alongside other improvements to make it easier for people to walk and use buses. 

The first stage addresses safety concerns and provides better transport options for people, while giving time for businesses on Kaiwharawhara Road to adapt and to manage the removal of car parking spaces before further changes are made. 

Stage 1 – 2023


  • Install a speed hump and part of the bike lane on Kenya Street and raise the pedestrian crossing at the corner of Crofton Road and Abbot Street

October – December

  • Install a new raised pedestrian crossing and two speed humps at the top of Ngaio Gorge Road, near Trelissick Crescent 
  • Install the cycle lanes on Ngaio Gorge Road, Crofton Road, and the rest of Kenya Street – this will remove most of the car parks on one side of Crofton Road and Ngaio Gorge Road
  • Extend the Ngaio village 30km/h speed zone on Ottawa Road and Crofton Road
  • On Cameron Street, install signs and road markings for the 30km/h speed limit, the wide shoulder for people biking uphill (to connect to the Kaiwharawhara Bridle Path) and no stopping lines, and change parking restrictions
  • Install the uphill bike lane and no stopping lines from 27 Kaiwharawhara Road (opposite Cameron Street) to Capital Auto Electrics, and from Hanging Around to 69 Kaiwharawhara Road
  • Install a clearway (4pm–7pm) between 1 and 25 Kaiwharawhara Road on the southern side (parking available at other times)
  • Install a clearway (4pm–7pm) and a loading zone (8am–4pm) outside Capital Auto Electrics and Hanging Around (parking available at other times)

Car parking changes in stage one

  • Remove parking on the south side of Kenya Street
  • Remove most of the car parks on the northern side of Crofton Road and the southern side of Ngaio Gorge Road from 69 Kaiwharawhara Road up to Kenya Street
  • Near the bottom of Cameron Street, remove two car parks, change four car parks to P60, the next five car parks to P120, and the remaining 39 car parks to P24-hour spaces to deter people from other suburbs parking their cars here for long periods
  • Remove one parking space at the bottom of Old Porirua Road
  • Change the remaining 39 car parks on Kaiwharawhara Road from P30 to P60


Stage 2 – later in 2024

  • Complete the work on Kaiwharawhara Road including the bike lane on the southern side and removing the parking that remains on this side of the street.
