Let's Go: Your Way

We have received $17m in funding from Waka Kotahi NZTA to help make walking and cycling around our city easier and safer.

Thanks for your feedback. Here's what happens now:

  • We are currently reviewing community feedback - primarily around parking concerns (particularly near businesses).
  • Updates to the proposed designs in certain areas are being explored and revised where possible.
  • New designs will be communicated to the affected community over the coming months, subject to Elected Member decision.
  • All proposed designs, including any changes, will be presented to Elected Members at an Extraordinary Council Meeting on 27 September 2023 (previously 19/09/23).
  • A decision by Elected Members will determine what projects (or parts of projects), if any, will be delivered before 30 June 2024.
  • Those who requested a deputation hearing will be contacted in the coming week, with hearing dates set for 13-15 September 2023.

We’re proposing three projects which focus on improving the safety of cyclists and walkers along some our busiest streets. In most cases, the upgrades are extensions of existing cycle lanes and pedestrian facilities.

About the Transport Choices funding

Waka Kotahi NZTA’s Transport Choices programme is a national programme funded by the Climate Emergency Relief Fund (CERF) that was formed out of the Government’s Emissions Reduction Plan. Funding supports projects that reduce our dependency on fossil fuels and cars by increasing the role of walking, cycling and public transport.
