Short section of one-way bike path                                

Work is underway to make space for bikes on the narrow one-way section of Grey Street at the Featherston Street intersection. This means people can ride both ways on Grey Street to and from the waterfront.

We're also making a one-way path on the southern side of Post Office Square to connect with the waterfront. This work includes improvements to the Jervois Quay signalised crossing for pedestrians and bikes.

Complete: covered bike parking rack

The covered bike parking area in Grey Street has space for 59 bikes in a Dutch two-tier rack (next to the public shower and toilets).

  • A short 1m-wide, one-way bike path will be added to the narrow one-way section of Grey Street on the hotel side.
  • The path will be on the edge of the paving beside the bollards and the vehicle lane. Lighter coloured bricks and cycle symbols will be used to mark the path.

 

How this will help

 

  • This short bike path means people can ride both ways on Grey Street between Featherston Street and Customhouse Quay, and connect with the one-way path being installed on Post Office Square.
  • Providing safe and convenient bike parking is one of the cheapest and easiest ways to encourage more people to cycle. 
  • These are part of a series of changes to improve connections and make it safer and easier for people to get places in the central city by bike. 
  • Incremental changes like these – combined with the more substantial changes planned as part of the Let’s Get Wellington Moving project – will together help create a better cycling network.
  • The feedback period on the traffic changes (resolutions) related to the bike parking proposal was 25 July to 11 August 2017.
  • Councillors approved the proposal on 14 September 2017.
  • Other changes recommended by the Central City Area Working Group are being considered. Some – including improvements to crossings to the waterfront – may happen as part of routine upgrade programmes. Others will require traffic resolutions that will be advertised at a later date.
