Wellington is growing - the population is expected to increase by about 80,000 people by 2043. This will put a lot more 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 Te Atakura - First to Zero, our plan for Wellington's future as a zero carbon capital by 2050, 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.
The transport improvements we make will go alongside the work of Let's Get Wellington Moving - a major plan to deliver a transport system that moves more people, goods and services reliably, with fewer vehicles. Let's Get Wellington Moving is a joint programme between Wellington City Council, Greater Wellington Regional Council and the NZ Transport Agency.
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.
