    We work with Greater Wellington Regional Council to prioritise and add bus shelters to the network. New shelters are prioritised based on a number of factors including how many and how frequently people board a bus, the weather and exposure, distance between stops/shelters and customer requests. We’re doubling the budget for bus shelters in 2019/20 which will allow us to progress more of the new shelters from our list.

  • Identifying hazards

    We’ve put aside a budget to both identify and remove hazards like overhanging tree branches, particularly for buses travelling through the city. One option is to promote Fixit, the Council’s free smartphone app that gives Wellingtonians another way to let us know about problems they see in the city that need fixing.

    We will purchase five new electronic signs to be used across the network to help people plan their journey and inform them of potential hazards. They can, for example, be used to warn people of construction works or events that may disrupt their journey.

    We have allocated $1.3 million per year towards initiatives that deliver road safety benefits. The programme is developed using a risk-based prioritisation process and may be adapted as safety issues arise. The following are likely to be progressed in 2019/20:

    • Safer speed limits in the CBD.
    • Intersection improvements in Hataitai, Brooklyn and Te Aro.
    • Safer shopping area speed limits in Tawa, Linden, Karori and Marsden Village.

  • Transport resilience

    Parts of the transport network are on steep hills that require substantial retaining structures and tunnels. The network is also susceptible to damage from storm events. Strengthening our infrastructure and clean-ups following storms remain a focus. The projects that will be progressed in 2019/20 that will improve the resilience of our roads include Ngaio Gorge rock bluffs, the Chaytor Street retaining wall in Karori and improvement to the Northland tunnel.
