Have your say - new bus stops at Kilbirnie Residents of the eastern suburbs are being asked for their views on where to locate new bus hubs planned for Kilbirnie next year. Greater Wellington Regional Council and Wellington City Council began public consultation this week on options for the suburb as part of its region-wide overhaul of bus routes and timetables scheduled for July next year. Greater Wellington Regional Council’s Sustainable Transport Committee Chair, Councillor Barbara Donaldson, said the existing hubs were poorly located and had to go. “In Kilbirnie, buses arrive and depart from three stops on Rongotai Road and one on Bay Road,” Ms Donaldson said. “This layout causes congestion in the town centre and offers little space or shelter for waiting passengers.

“We’ve developed three location options, all are viable, so it’s a matter of which mix of advantages and disadvantages appeals to more people. “Some might want a more compact layout so it’s easier to get on and off connecting buses. Others might favour easier access to shops and facilities. Still others might want a layout that offers the fastest, most direct route for buses. “In Kilbirnie, for example, we could have all the stops on Evans Bay Parade, or all on Rongotai Road, or divide them between the two. “It’s a question of choice – which is why we’re seeking the views of residents and commuters.” The hub in Johnsonville is also under consultation as the current location was at the mall. Facilities at five other bus hubs, including ones in Newtown, Brook-

lyn and Miramar, would also be upgraded at a total cost of $3.5 million, but their locations would remain unchanged. The cost of relocating the hubs included building new shelters, widening footpaths, removing parking spaces where necessary, installing new curbing and altering road markings and would be met be regional council.  Consultation documents containing maps overlaid with each option, together with pros and cons, can be found at Ruth Gotlieb (Kilbirnie) Library and at Copies can also be mailed out (call 0800 801 700). Consultation runs until July 14, after which a recommendation would go to both Wellington City and regional council, along with publication of consultation results.

Bus stops are set to change in Kilbirnie.
