Thorndon Quay

In progress

We’re upgrading Thorndon Quay. It’s a thriving retail district and one of our busiest commuter routes used by more than 11,000 Wellingtonians every day! We’re building peak-hour bus lanes, a two-way cycle path, six signalised pedestrian and bike crossings, and improved lighting and planting. New art will reflect local awa (streams) and celebrate our cultural heritage. 

We’re doing the construction in sections and there will usually be two places along the route on the go at any one time until we’re due to finish in June 2025. These improvements were consulted with the public in May 2021 and November 2022, and approved in August 2023.  

Businesses on Thorndon Quay remain easy to get to and we’re putting up signs to show you where to park. If you need help getting around the works on foot, our onsite construction team is happy to help.
