Waka Kotahi NZ Transport Agency is working with Nelson City Council (NCC), local iwi and the community to develop a package of improvements to address transport issues in Nelson over the next 30 years.

Last year, the community was asked for feedback on long-term options for Nelson. 

At a Council meeting on Thursday 13 May, Councillors voted to support Priority Lanes as the preferred long-term solution.

This time, feedback is sought on shorter-term improvements. 

This includes intersection improvements, walking and cycling paths, and proposed traffic calming to enhance neighbourhoods and improve safety.

There is opportunity to provide feedback on walking and cycling improvements for Rocks Road. Feedback is also being sought on options for replacing the seawall.

The proposal has been developed to meet the Government’s expectations to reduce emissions, connect communities and improve safety, and to align with Nelson City Council’s vision for the future.

No matter how you travel around Nelson, these future plans will be of interest to you.
