Changes proposed for Thorndon Quay and Hutt Road - have your say

Through the Let's Get Wellington Moving (LGWM) programme, big changes are proposed on Thorndon Quay and Hutt Road to improve this busy commuter route. You can find out more about the proposals and have your say on the LGWM website. Feedback is required by Tuesday 8 June 2021.

The project follows earlier discussions with the community over the past few years and will build on and complement changes that have already been made along part of Hutt Road. Proposals include an interim plan to make the route safer by removing angle parking on Thorndon Quay.

 

The project is also looking to:

  • improve safety for everyone
  • give buses more priority
  • improve intersections and pedestrian crossings
  • provide better walking and cycling facilities
  • enhance the street environment to create attractive spaces 
  • improve access to the Kaiwharawhara ferry terminal for passengers and freight.

Thorndon Quay is an important part of Wellington’s transport network, particularly for people in the northern suburbs. 

Thorndon Quay

In 2017, a Thorndon Quay community working group was set up to look at options for improving bus priority and making the street safer for people on bikes and on foot. The project later became part of the Let's Get Wellington Moving programme.

Project considered but no longer going ahead

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.
