What did we do?
We tested different options, using temporary materials, to see what designs are most effective in reducing potential conflicts between pedestrians and cyclists. The trials were in place from late July through to early September 2022.
We engaged with parents, the day-care facilities, cyclists and pedestrians to inform these trials and also the final design for the two-way cycle path as part of Let's Get Wellington Moving's Thorndon Quay Hutt Road programme.
From our earlier consultation in 2021, stakeholders told us that there are conflicts outside of the two childcare facilities on Hutt Road, particularly regarding issues with cyclist speeds and conflicts between cyclists and parents / caregivers and children crossing the two-way cycle path from and to parked vehicles.
There were two trials, involving different layouts and materials on the cycle path and surrounding footpath.
