Our vision for Wellington is a great harbour city, accessible to all, with attractive places, shared streets, and efficient local and regional journeys.

To realise our vision we need to move more people with fewer vehicles.

Our central city is the core of a growing region. But growth - constrained by our hills and harbour - is creating challenges. Our transport system is approaching capacity and without major changes, it will start to undermine the very liveability and culture that is Wellington’s great strength. The community wants transport challenges addressed and supports significant change. We agree.

Recommended Programme of Investment

The recommended programme reflects our ambitions for improving Wellington’s transport system over the next two decades. It is a high-level, whole-of-system approach that will enable the growth of the city and the region. It seeks to integrate urban development with transport investment, and help people get around, whether you’re walking, cycling, using public transport, or driving.

At its heart, the programme seeks to deliver a multi-modal transport system that moves more people, goods and services reliably, with fewer vehicles.

The Way Forward

Our vision and the recommended programme are ambitious. Once the Recommended Programme of Investment was endorsed by our Governance Group, it was shared with central government due to its scale and the funding challenges it presents.

The government’s announcement provides a clear way forward and means we can now commence more detailed investigation of the elements of the indicative package and how these will work together to deliver on our objectives.

While we do this work on the wider package, we need to make a start on moving more people with fewer vehicles. We’re proposing an early delivery programme to help change how we move into and around the city.
