Footways of Northland and Wilton, Wellington

Here is a list of footways that join streets in Northland, Wilton and a little bit of Wadestown in Wellington. We have also included access points to Tinakori Hill and Otari-Wilton's bush from these suburbs.

Most of the footways are steep and/or have steps. These are unsuitable for wheelchairs and many would present a challenge for baby-strollers.

Please send corrections, additions and suggestions to rbd [at] livingstreets.org.nz.

The problem with footpath parking

A letter to the Wellington City Council’s Infrastructure Committee


I am a pedestrian.  I use footpaths for walking and occasionally for running.  When people park their cars park on the footpath, in such a way as to prevent me from passing, I am forced to walk or run on the road.  If I am on my own, this is an annoying inconvenience and creates a minor risk to my personal safety.  This inconvenience is increased on rubbish collection days when recycling bins, wheelie bins and rubbish bags are also on the footpath.

Quality of Life survey acknowledges Wellington's walkability

The Quality of Life survey, made public today, asked residents in 12 cities to rank their lives in areas including health, crime and safety, and public transport. Wellington came out on top, with just under 95 per cent of Wellingtonians ranking theirs as either extremely good or good, making Wellington the No 1 city. The survey reports Wellingtonians believe it is generally a safe place to live. The city topped the list for people feeling safe after nightfall while in their homes, visiting the city centre, and walking in their neighbourhood.
