Wellington City Council Web Alert


The following consultation is now available online:

Traffic Resolution – Golden Mile
Proposed traffic restrictions to carry out the bus priority scheme in Golden Mile – Manners Mall.

Opened: 13 April
Closing: 30 April

Traffic Resolution – Golden Mile

Bus only lane

Wellington City Council is asking for public submissions on a resolution for traffic restrictions so that we can carry out the bus priority scheme in the Golden Mile.

Background Information

There are some traffic movement and parking changes needed in light of the Council’s decision to open up Manners Mall to public transport and to make improvements to surrounding streets.

The Council’s decision to revoke the pedestrian status of Manners Mall has been the subject of an Environment Court appeal. We expect to hear the outcome of the appeal in May. The project will proceed if the Council’s decision is upheld.

The resolution forms part of the preparatory work needed for construction works.

Projects – Restoring the Golden Mile – Bus Route and Street Changes


The proposed changes involve:

  • reversing the flow of general traffic in Manners Street (and restricting turn movements as a result)
  • removing parking from Manners Street east and Willis Street
  • creating more car parks in Dixon Street, Victoria Street, Wakefield Street and Mercer Street.

Some current car parks will be out of use during the construction period.

The changes will result in better overall movement of traffic through the area and provide approximately 40 additional car parks.


To make a submission, read the proposed traffic resolution, view the map and complete the online submission form below.

The deadline for submissions is:  5.00pm Friday 30 April 2010.
