We’re changing our streets to give people safer, easier, climate-friendly ways to get around our compact city. 

Wellington's streets are grinding to a halt as our population and car use continue to grow. 

We can free up our streets by providing safer and easier option to walk, bike, or bus so that more of us can get places without relying on cars. Giving people better transport options will reduce pressure on our streets and keep our city moving. 

Wellingtonians have made it clear they want action on climate change and transport. We’ve developed Paneke Pōneke to deliver a connected citywide bike network, along with walking and public transport improvements, so more people can get around in climate friendly ways. 

How change is happening

The Council is making changes to our streets in a number of ways. In the central city, and on key public transport routes, we’re doing it in partnership with Greater Wellington Regional Council and Waka Kotahi through the Let's Get Wellington Moving programme - a major plan to deliver a transport system that moves more people, goods and services reliably, with fewer vehicles.

Through Let's Get Wellington Moving, the District Plan, and the Bike Network Plan, putting the right transport system in place for Wellington will mean more people can get around safely and easily without having to rely on cars. 

This work is delivering on the decisions Wellington City Council has made as part of:
