Stop the Basin Reserve Flyover!

Signatures

Petition details

We are opposed to a flyover road next to the Basin Reserve. The Basin Reserve is the oldest sporting ground in New Zealand and its iconic heritage must be protected. We also oppose a second Mt Victoria tunnel and road widening in Wellington Road and Ruahine Street. We call upon the Wellington Regional Council, Wellington City Council and the New Zealand Transport Agency to resolve Wellington’s transport issues around the Basin Reserve by sustainable transport options.

Background information

The sustainable solutions we propose are bus lanes, light rail, walking and cycling improvements and we request the council consult with the community about all options including these sustainable ones.
