    Lets get welly moving

    This is a joint initiative involving Wellington City Council, the NZ Transport Agency (NZTA), and Greater Wellington Regional Council to deliver better city and regional outcomes through investment in a modern, integrated transport network. We currently have a provisional budget in Our 10-Year Plan of $122 million from 2022/23 toward this programme of work. We expect this to change following the announcement of the LGWM programme later in 2019. Once we have a confirmed programme, we will engage on any additional funding required and update Our 10-Year Plan.

    The Petone to Grenada project is one of a number of roading schemes currently being reviewed by NZTA, to evaluate whether they align with the new vision for our transport network. Once this has been completed, work may proceed as currently planned, be staged differently, or lower cost options explored. This could mean that previously shortlisted options, or even the preferred option, may change. The NZTA Board met in December to consider next steps, however there is still more work to be done. NZTA expect to be able to make announcements about decisions on these projects in the coming months. This NZTA-led project is expected to unlock access to the Lincolnshire development in Horokiwi.

    Over the next 10 years and beyond, Wellington City Council is partnering with NZTA and central government to deliver a fully connected cycle network throughout Wellington. By 2028 the cycle network is expected to see connections developed to the south through Newtown, Berhampore and Island Bay, to the outer eastern suburbs, including Miramar, and Strathmore Park. NZTA is expected to develop a connection to the Hutt Valley. Karori, Highbury, Kelburn and Brooklyn will all become part of the network. Safer connections from Johnsonville, Newlands, Churton Park and Tawa will be added from the north, and Thorndon and the CBD are expected to be improved as part of the LGWM programme.
