We started with the kind of city and region our community wants, and defined the transport system needed to enable that
We talked to people across the region and asked them to tell us what they love about Wellington City and what frustrates them about getting around it. Around 10,000 people responded.
We used their feedback to develop 12 guiding principles we’ve used to plan and assess our programme.
The LGWM partners have shared priorities for the region’s future.
We used the community’s principles, alongside our shared priorities, to develop and agree objectives for the programme.
Shape Wellington’s growth
by improving accessibility to encourage greater urban density, and supporting higher residential, employment, and commercial opportunities along the mass transit corridor
Create more attractive and safer city streets
through less traffic, slower speeds, less noise and air pollution, and a better urban environment
Improve travel choices
to provide safe, convenient, attractive, and reliable journeys
Support greater productivity
through more reliable and predictable journey times, so people can use their time better and freight efficiencies can be unlocked
Improve community health and wellbeing
through better safety and more people walking, cycling and using public transport
Support better environmental outcomes
through more people using low emission transport – walking, cycling, and public transport - and by delivering a more compact city where more destinations can be reached by these modes
Make the most of what we have
Deliver a step change in public transport
Improve journeys to, from and in the central city
Improve journeys through and around the central city
We have developed key performance indicators (KPIs) to assess the performance of our programme. The main KPIs are shown below.
The quality of the urban environment, including green space, urban design, traffic volumes/speeds and pedestrian space
Transport-related CO2 emissions in the central city
Opportunities for urban development and value uplift
The reliability of travel time by different modes to key regional destinations
The number of people living within 30 mins of key destinations
The ratio of people travelling to the central city (by all modes) against the number of private vehicles
Delays for people walking in the central city
The quality of cycling facilities
The safety benefits for people walking and cycling in and around the central city
Network resilience to disruption caused by large-scale natural hazards
