Featherston Street is a key route through the central city. It connects to Thorndon Quay and carries much of the traffic to and from the northern suburbs of Wellington and beyond. About 14,000 vehicles use this route every day with hundreds of people on bikes in the morning peak.
There is an existing city-bound bike lane on Featherston Street between Mulgrave Street and Bunny Street, and a new section of lane going in on the other side in late 2017. We will further improve this route in 2018 by extending the southbound bike lane from Bunny Street to Ballance Street. This will have little impact on parking or traffic but improves the experience for people cycling into and around the city.
