What happened to this consultation?
The paper proposing temporary bike lanes and other street changes to encourage social distancing around Wellington has been withdrawn from Wellington City Council’s Strategy and Policy Committee agenda on Thursday 11 June. This follows the government’s announcement of the move to alert level 1 and the lifting of all social distancing requirements, which is expected to see capacity on public transport return to normal.
The Council has also called a halt to proposed temporary changes on Featherston, Hunter and Victoria streets.
It’s possible some of these projects may be progressed at a later stage. If this happens, the feedback that has already been provided will be very helpful, and we will be able to work more closely with the community as the proposals are developed. Thank you for taking the time to provide your thoughts on these proposals.
