Improvements planned

With the Central City Area Working Group, we considered a range of possibilities to improve connections and make getting around by bike safer and easier. We’ve agreed to do more detailed design work on more than 20 improvements that can potentially be made between the railway station and Pukeahu National War Memorial Park.

These include:

  • some possible new cycle lanes, including contra-flow lanes in one-way streets that would allow people on bikes to travel both ways
  • more bike-friendly crossing points (particularly to the waterfront)
  • wider kerb ramps
  • more cross now buttons for people on bikes
  • minor changes to traffic light phasing
  • more sharrow road markings
  • intersection improvements including more green stop boxes.

 

Next steps 

Some of the changes – like kerbs and new cross buttons – are fairly minor and will be carried out as part of our routine upgrade programmes.

With others, like the proposed contra-flow cycle lanes in one-way streets, which are new for Wellington, people will have opportunities to comment. We’ll talk or write to those directly affected, and seek wider feedback when the proposed traffic changes are advertised.
