About this project
The Wai Horotiu Queen Street Valley Pilot is the first in a series of stages to improve Queen Street for everyone, giving more space to people walking, cycling, using public transport, and delivering and servicing homes and buildings.

We are working with the community to shape the improvements. Three co-design workshops took place in September, October and November 2020. Further data has been provided via hui, Social Pinpoint, Have Your Say and targeted engagement.

We wanted to start by saying a big thank you to everyone who has contributed to this pilot.

Through this co-design process and the input we have received from Aucklanders, we have developed a clear set of directions to make Queen Street more appealing, accessible and attractive. This is summarised by the five principles below:

  • Peoples Experience: Creating a thriving place where people want to be
  • Access: Provide universal access for all that need it while prioritising necessary trips
  • Movement: Enable safe and efficient public transport and access to active modes
  • Environment: Mitigate environmental impacts and deliver C40 and Auckland Climate Plan goals
  • Tactical: Be smart with our decisions on the timing and location of changes so that the benefits align with, and enhance, other activities.

There are two main streams of work that will get underway early in the new year as part of the pilot, these are:

- Improvements to the streetscape, to make the street a more attractive, safe and accessible street where people want to spend time.
- Reduce private vehicle traffic on Queen Street in time for the next phase of City Rail Link Construction when Victoria Street is closed to through traffic by mid 2021. There will be a consultation held on these changes early in the new year, we will provide more details on this closer to the time.
