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.
Bike lanes are provided in both directions on Featherston Street between Thorndon Quay and Bunny Street. We aim to improve this route by extending the southbound bike lane.
We propose to install a 1.6m-wide bike lane between Bunny Street and Ballance Street to extend the existing southbound lane along Featherston Street.
The bike lane extends the biking connection from Thorndon Quay to Bunny Street. This solution has little impact on parking or traffic movement but improves the experience for people cycling into and around the city.
