In December 2023 the Government, Wellington City Council and Greater Wellington Regional Council agreed to dissolve the Let’s Get Wellington Moving (LGWM) programme. The announcement from Minister of Transport Simeon Brown, Mayor of Wellington City Council Tory Whanau and Chair of Greater Wellington Daran Ponter is on the Beehive website.

The partners agreed:

  • Further work to implement the Golden Mile project and the Thorndon Quay to Hutt Road project will be led by Wellington City Council.
  • Further work on the Basin Reserve and Mount Victoria Tunnel options will be led by New Zealand Transport Agency (NZTA).
  • The partners acknowledge investment in core North-South, East-West and Harbour Quays’ bus corridors was a key priority of LGWM and continues to be a key priority for Wellington.
