Let’s Get Wellington Moving (LGWM) is a joint initiative between Wellington City Council, Greater Wellington Regional Council and Waka Kotahi to transform Wellington’s transport system to support growth, reduce congestion and make it safer and easier for everyone to get around. The city’s vision is to be accessible to all, with attractive places, shared streets, and efficient local and regional journeys.

The Government Policy Statement on land transport 2021 (GPS) has an investment expectation of $3.8 billion from the National Land Transport Fund from 2021/22 to 2041/42, reflecting an overall split of 60:40 investment between central and local government (subject to funding availability).

In the 2021–24 NLTP, $159 million is planned to be invested from the NLTP on a number of projects, including:

  • City Streets – making it safer and easier for people to walk, cycle, or travel by bus through the busiest places in the central city
  • Thorndon Quay and Hutt Road – improvements aimed at making streets and pathways safer and more attractive for cyclists and pedestrians, giving buses more priority, and improving access to ferry services.
  • Golden Mile – redevelopment of Lambton Quay and Willis Street, from Parliament to Courtney Place, with a greater emphasis on people and accessible spaces.
  • Managing travel demand – a package of smart transport measures to help make the best use of existing infrastructure and smooth the transition while the various components of LGWM are built.

Almost $159 million will be invested in developing the detailed business case through to implementation for mass rapid transit that will connect the railway station with the hospital, Newtown, Miramar and the Wellington Airport. Mass rapid transit will improve travel choice and help shape a compact, sustainable city.

A further $92 million will be provided for the detailed business case through to implementation phases for proposed investments in State Highway 1, including improvements to the Basin Reserve, and the construction of a second tunnel through Mt Victoria. Both projects will provide improvements for all transport modes, including pedestrians, cyclists and public transport.
