    • Ohiro Road South Improvements
      • We're proposing safety changes to Ohiro Road, Brooklyn. These changes aim to create a safer and more efficient road environment for all residents and road users. The proposed safety improvements include: Building upon the collaboration with the community and local business, and the commitment to safety improvements, the Council are proposing the following changes: Creating a legalised bus stop. Providing a dedicated buffer zone for cyclists. Creating 2.1 meters of designated Parking spaces. Installing Broken yellow lines to prevent unauthorised parking. Shifting the centrelines to accommodate the proposed changes. You can see the full list of changes laid out in the proposed plan documents. Background: The Transport Engineering and Parking team has received concerns from residents regarding vehicles parked on the footpath of Ohiro Road (217-507 Ohiro road). These vehicles narrow the footpath, leaving insufficient space for pedestrians with wheelchairs and prams to pass through. Residents are requesting the reinstallation of road markings to encourage people to park on road rather than on the footpath. After conducting our investigation, we held a meeting with ward Councillors and resident association members to discuss parking issues on Ohiro Road. We also conducted a parking survey to determine the number of illegal parking instances on Ohiro Road. You can see our findings linked in the document section. We want to hear from you We're looking for your perspectives on the proposed Ohiro Road improvements. There are a number of ways you can let us know what you think: You can submit your feedback in the submission box below. You can also email your thoughts directly at ohirosouthintersection@wcc.govt.nz You can have your say between Wednesday 22 November 2023 and 5.00 pm, Friday 8 December 2023 What will happen next After this engagement period, our team will carefully assess all the feedback received, and consider any necessary amendments before proceeding with the Traffic Resolutions consultation.

    • TR 06-24 – Hutt Road from Aotea Quay overbridge to Jarden Mile intersection – Proposed Changes
      • We're asking for feedback on two proposed traffic and parking changes on Hutt Road. Between Aotea Quay overbridge 9 (at approximately 87 Hutt Road) and the Jarden Mile intersection, we are proposing changes to parking and the shared walking and cycling path, the introduction of dedicated bus lanes at peak travel times and new or upgraded pedestrian crossing facilities, bus stops and shelters. These changes aim to deliver a safer Hutt Road that caters for all ways of travelling. Why are changes proposed? Thorndon Quay and Hutt Road is one of Wellington’s busiest bus corridors, carrying around 10,000 passengers each weekday and a bus every 90 seconds in peak periods. It’s also the city’s busiest cycle route and one of its most important commuter routes. Wellington’s population is growing with projections of a further 75,000 people over the next 30 years, including around 15,000 in the northern suburbs. In addition, around 27,750 are projected in the urban centres outside of Wellington City (Kāpiti, Porirua, Upper Hutt, Lower Hutt and the Wairarapa). Thorndon Quay and Hutt Road will be critical to safely and efficiently catering for this growth. We've already heard from Wellingtonians that along this route you’d like to see increased safety for everyone, improved bus priority and reliability, better walking and cycling facilities and a more attractive street environment. These proposals aim to provide safer and more reliable travel choices for everyone – whether walking, cycling, driving or travelling by bus. Following feedback and Council approval, the traffic restrictions will be added to the Council's legal database and instructions issued to contractors to install the changes. Summary Reference Location and proposed changes TR 06-24 Hutt Road from Aotea Quay overbridge to Jarden Mile intersection For people on buses Dedicated bus-only lanes at peak travel times (inbound 6:30am to 9:30am and outbound 4pm to 6:30pm). At all other times, buses will travel in general traffic. The changes will save up to eight minutes in the morning peak period for those heading into the city. Some bus stops relocated to improve accessibility for pedestrians and upgraded to better serve those with mobility needs. Improvements at Jarden Mile, including new shelters and a new bus interchange for transfers between State Highway 1 (Centennial Highway) and State Highway 2. For people walking and cycling Widening the shared path from Ngā Ūranga to Onslow Road and seamlessly connecting it to the Onslow to Tinakori Road shared path. Upgrading the shared path to connect to others under construction, including Te Ara Tupua from Ngā Ūranga to Petone (Ngā Ūranga ki Pito One) and Thorndon Quay. New or improved pedestrian and cycle crossings at Jarden Mile intersection. Upgraded Rangiora Avenue pedestrian crossing with raised tables and traffic signals. For people driving Hutt Road resurfaced with clear line markings. Road layout and signalling changes at the Onslow Road / Hutt Road intersection to enable traffic to exit Onslow Road more safely. Jarden Mile intersection changes to support bus lanes and shared paths, including removing the slip lane from the State Highway 2 off-ramp to Hutt Road. Parking designation and location changes to enable bus lane and shared path changes (a net loss of two parks).

    • Riddiford Street-Russell Terrace roundabout improvement
      • We want your feedback on a proposal to upgrade to the roundabout at the intersection of Russell Terrace, Riddiford, Mansfield and Rhodes streets in Newtown. About the proposed improvements The proposed improvements come after the community raised concerns about the safety of the intersection for motorists, cyclists, and pedestrians. In response to those concerns, Council officers have investigated and are proposing safety improvements: Installation of three (3) new raised zebra crossings, one each on Rhodes St, Russell Terrace and Mansfield St to improve the safety and accessibility of pedestrians and cyclists crossing the intersection. Installation of speed cushions on Riddiford St to reduce vehicle speed approaching to the intersection. Creating a central refuge island as part of the new crossings on Rhodes St and Mansfield St to further improve pedestrian safety, by reducing the exposure time of pedestrians to traffic when crossing. Installation of a No Stopping at All Times sign approaching the new crossings to improve sight visibility and safety at the pedestrian zebra crossing. Background Waka Kotahi’s Crash Analysis System (CAS) shows the intersection has a high safety issue, with eight injury crashes, and 11 non-injury crashes occurring in the past 10 years (2010-2020), incurring a substantial social injury cost of $3.08M. The initial community engagement in August 2021 highlighted significant safety concerns with the intersection. Most respondents expressed discomfort with the current state of pedestrian safety. Problems have been confirmed as below: Limited accessibility and facilities for pedestrians to cross the roads at this location High vehicle speed reduces safety and access for pedestrians and cyclists and Vehicles’ failure to give way forms an unsafe environment for all road users We want to hear from you We really want to hear your perspectives on the changes we are proposing to this intersection.

We will be incorporating public feedback into a detailed design between- Dec 2023 – Mar 2024. Final changes will be decided in a formal Traffic resolution, with works commencing in the first half of 2024.

    • Box Hill and Station Rd Intersection safety improvement
      • Box Hill and Station Rd Intersection safety improvement In September 2019, Wellington City Council received a 129 signatured e-petition expressing safety concerns for people who use the Box Hill/ Burma Road/Station Road/Baroda Street intersection in Khandallah. To gain a better understanding of the problems and concerns of the intersection, an anonymous survey and a Traffic Survey were carried out in August 2020. Problems of this intersection have been confirmed as below: User confusion, complex layout and high demand are resulting in an unsafe environment for users; High vehicle speed reduces safety and access for pedestrians and cyclists; and Traffic congestion at the intersection is causing delays and resulting in frustration and unsafe manoeuvres. The proposed safety improvements include: Building upon the collaboration with the community and local business, and the commitment to safety improvements, the Council are proposing the following changes: Implementing traffic light controls at the intersection to manage traffic flow, prioritise the crossing of pedestrians and cyclists, and enhance safety for all road users. Adding 'No Stopping' restrictions on all approaches to the intersection to improve visibility for all road users. Time-restricted parking spaces to optimise parking availability and traffic movement, as well as balance the need for access to local businesses.

    • Wadestown connection part 1, October 2023 TR117-23, TR118-23
      • Wellington City Council is asking for feedback on two proposed new traffic resolutions. The resolutions are for Cycle way changes and parking restrictions. Following feedback and Council approval, the traffic restrictions will be added to the Council's legal database and instructions issued to contractors to install any signs and road markings. TR117-23 Churchill Drive, Wilton and Crofton Downs – Cycleway and Not Stopping At All Times. We’re consulting on minor changes on Churchill Drive to make this street safer and easier for people travelling by bike, on foot, and by bus. The changes we’re looking at include: Installing speed humps on the approach to two pedestrian crossings to slow vehicle speeds. Removing car parks outside 11 to 21 Churchill Drive, where cars often park illegally on the footpath and road. Installing uphill bike lanes along Churchill Drive - towards Crofton Downs between Blackbridge Road and Chartwell Drive; and towards Wilton from Wilton Bush Road to Wilton Road Painting broken yellow lines on Churchill Drive. These changes will make it safer for everyone travelling along Churchill Drive, as sightlines will improve for all road users, and the new layout will encourage people to travel at the posted speed limit and create more space for people biking without slowing down buses and cars heading uphill. If you’d like to provide feedback, you can do so by filling out an online submission form at letstalk.wellington.govt.nz, emailing us at trfeedback@wcc.govt.nz, or download a printable submission form to fill out. This consultation is open from 9am Monday 14 August until 5pm Sunday 27 August. If you have any questions about this work, please don’t hesitate to contact us.   TR118-23 Park Street, Grant Road, Wadestown Road, Wadestown - Proposed cycle lane and parking changes. This leaflet is to let you know about a change we are proposing to make in your neighborhood as part of the Wadestown connections biking and walking improvements. Park Street, Grant Road, and Wadestown Road are part of the Wellington bike network. We’re consulting on a minor change now that can make these roads safer and easier for people travelling by bike, on foot, and by car. To improve safety of people travelling on this route, we’re proposing to relocate some on-street car parks and remove a small amount of on-street car parking. We would then be able to install an uphill bike lane along Park Street, a short section of Grant Road, then up Wadestown Road to the intersection of Wadestown Road and Roscoe Terrace. These changes will make it safer and easier for everyone travelling up Wadestown Road, as it will mean people driving won’t get stuck behind people biking uphill, and there will be no need for cars to cross the centreline to pass parked cars. In addition to the changes proposed through this consultation, we will also be raising the two pedestrian crossings at Wadestown village to help slow traffic down past the shops to meet the posted speed limit of 30kph and make it safer for people to walk across the road.

    • Frederick Street Park Upgrades
      • We are creating a new public park and open space, that will improve the local community by providing an additional green space in Te Aro. This new space will be located on the corner of Taranaki Street and Frederick Street, it will sit alongside the Chinese Mission Hall and a new residential apartment block. About the project This project aims to establish a new park in Wellington that strengthens community connections and improves the surrounding environment. By celebrating our cultural heritage and fostering a sense of unity, we seek to create an inviting green space where people can gather, relax, and enjoy meaningful experiences. This initiative will enhance the overall quality of life in our community by preserving our unique identity and promoting the natural beauty of Wellington. Project background The Council’s Green Network Plan has a target to deliver two new inner-city parks for Wellington. This project will be the first new park to be delivered in line with this strategy. The Te Aro precinct currently has a deficiency of greening, with only three active/passive recreation spaces available for inner city residents. The anticipated population growth of Wellington Central presents a need for additional green/public open spaces. By developing more green spaces in relation to areas of expected residential growth, we can deliver ‘density done well’, this is ensuring a level of service and amenity is available to inner city residents, contributing to their wellbeing and positive experience of inner city living. You can read more about the Frederick St space and its historical context in the background document (Documents section). Project priorities Our main priorities within the project include; Partnership with Mana Whenua- Working in meaningful partnership with mana whenua to shape and contribute to project outcomes. Increase Greening- Align with the Green Network Plan’s key objectives and Our City Tomorrow goals for a greener city. Increasing accessibility by creating a space that considers and welcomes all users Water Sensitive Design – Consider opportunities for improving wai ora (water health) and storm water management Safety- Deliver on Poneke promise objectives to design public spaces that are safe. vibrant, welcoming, and well-maintained. We want to hear from you We would love to know your thoughts and hear about your connection to the area, as well as your needs and wants for the space. You can have your say through our Rima survey which is linked below. Rima is WCC's five-minute early engagement survey tool. Submissions on this close Sunday 30 July, 5pm.

    • Miramar Minor Safety Works
      • We are proposing line marking changes at the intersection of Townsend-Otaki and Athens Street. These proposals include: Adding a painted roundabout at the centre of the intersection where Townsend-Otaki and Athens Street meet. Initially, the roundabout will only be painted on the road to observe traffic movement and allow the public to adapt to the new layout. After a thorough assessment, consideration will be given to installing more permanent structures. Adding wide median markings at all the entrances of the intersection to separate the approach and departure lane. At the same time reducing the lane width to lower the approach speed. Installing give way markings and signage at all of the intersection entrances. Realigning the pedestrian crossing on Athens Street and installing a new pedestrian crossing on Otaki Street. Adding broken yellow lines on both corners of Athens Street and Otaki Street to improve visibility and reduce congestion. These changes have been proposed after receiving complaints and safety concerns from the public about the intersection. We have heard that many people have experienced near misses, or confusion while navigating the area. We want to hear from you We really want to hear your thoughts and feedback on the proposed safety changes in Miramar. There are a number of ways you can let us know what you think: Leaving your thoughts and feedback in the survey box below Emailing Miramarminorworks@wcc.govt.nz Submissions close Wednesday 19 June 2023 at 9am What will happen next After the initial engagement, our team will access the feedback and come back to the community with any changes, and the next steps.
