Improve bus journey times
Move more people with fewer cars as the city's population grows
Provide safer and easier ways to go places on foot and on bikes
In mid-2020, the Let's Get Wellington Moving (LGWM) programme plans to develop and seek feedback on options to improve bus priority along Hutt Road and Thorndon Quay.
The work will include changes to make Thorndon Quay safer for people on foot and on bikes. Any changes will complement the significant improvements that have already been made on Hutt Road for pedestrians and cyclists. Find out more about LGWM and its plans and timeline for this area.
Thorndon Quay is an important part of Wellington’s transport network, particularly for people in the northern suburbs.
With Hutt Road, Thorndon Quay is one of our busiest biking commuter routes and a crucial link in the region's wider cycle network. In time, it will be part of Te Ara Tupua, the Wellington to Hutt Valley cycling and walking link to be built by Waka Kotahi NZ Transport Agency.
In mid-2020, Let's Get Wellington Moving plans to develop and seek feedback on options to improve bus journey times along Thorndon Quay and Hutt Road.
Planning will include consideration of the work done by a working group set up to help look at options for this area. The group met five times during 2017.

An interim improvement for bikes was approved by Councillors in 2018 that would have converted the angle parking to parallel parking and marked on-road bike lanes between Davis Street and Mulgrave Street to make this section of Thorndon Quay a little safer.
It was planned this change would be made in conjunction with routine road sealing work at the end of 2018 however the road sealing work wasn't required as quickly as anticipated, so this temporary change wasn't made.
Keep up to date with how projects are going, and understand the process so far. New events will be added as the project progresses.Read more
