Light Rail 2009Posted: November 9, 2012
Light rail through the city must be the focus of council planning now. It is no good to put the discussion off.
Today is the time for taking bold moves. Redesigning transport in Wellington, and the CBD in partricular, needs to be on the agenda now. Light rail could be the “spine” of the system from the rail station through to Newtown and the airport in a possibly sustainable era of urban design.
In the CBD pedestrians must have the priority. Light rail will be most “friendly” to pedestrians. Bus routes would be designed around access to the CBD and the light rail spine to reach outlying areas.
