Wellington is growing - the population is expected to increase by about 80,000 people by 2043. This will put a lot of pressure on transport.
This growth, combined with health and environmental benefits, are some of the key reasons we are making changes so people have more choice in how they get around.
In line with our Urban Growth Plan and our goal to reduce the city's carbon emissions, the Council is encouraging walking, cycling and public transport over other modes of transport.
This also fits perfectly with our aim to make Wellington City an even more sustainable and attractive place to live and visit.
Over the next 10 to 20 years, we’re building a more resilient transport network. To achieve this, we know the best results come from working closely with the community.
The transport improvements we make will go alongside the work of Let's Get Wellington Moving.
