Stage one planting
Work on Wellington's new waterfront gateway is completed. The project began in July 2006 with the creation of a two metre-wide median strip, and was completed in June 2007.
The median strip has been planted with the Maori Princess species of pohutukawa tree between the Jervois Quay/Cable Street intersection and Bunny Street.
The work included the installation of the median strip, irrigation, feature lighting, and planting of 52 native trees. The median has made the waterfront route a more attractive place to walk and drive.
It also provides safer and more convenient opportunities for pedestrians crossing from the city to the waterfront.
The project area included Bunny Street to the Jervois Quay - Cable Street intersection. The work was done in two stages:

Maori Princess pohutukawa are planted along the median. This species of pohutukawa has an upright growth habit, making it ideal for street planting. Native shrubs were also planted along the route.
The tree planting did not affect the number of traffic lanes along the quays. As part of the installation work, the existing lanes were realigned and the lane widths modified.
