People in the community worked together with Wellington City Council to come up with options to make it easier and safer for people to walk and bike around Kilbirnie, between the eastern suburbs and into the central city.

How we got here

 Kilbirnie overview OCT


Community working groups have looked for the best ways to encourage more people of all ages and abilities to ride bikes. The range of proposed options vary street by street – changes on a quiet street will be different to what is needed on a busy thoroughfare.

Among other things, the groups talked about parking, the needs of residents and businesses, trees, heritage features, lane widths, safer speeds, painted median strips, driveways, existing safety issues, pedestrian crossings, intersections and bus stops.

Your next opportunity for comment will likely be in November 2017. If you comment, we’ll keep you up to date as designs progress for this part of the network.

This proposal does not include a crossing on Cobham Drive, but we are working with the NZ Transport Agency on possible solutions for the longer term.
