What is new in 2022?

March was Walk2Work Day share a photo only due to Covid restrictions, we hope to be back in full stride next year for this popular event.

March was also Park(ing) Day and once again Living Streets took over a car park to reflect on 'Covid Space Walk' and all that distance between us due to the pandemic.

The Great Harbour Way - getting around Wellington harbour by foot and pedal

The Great Harbour Way project aims to promote a Walkway and Cycleway around Te Whanganui-a-tara, the harbour of Wellington, New Zealand. The aim is that there will be a continuous, safe, signposted walkway and cycleway around the whole perimeter - from Fitzroy Bay in the west to Sinclair Head in the east. Few, if any, opportunities exist elsewhere in the world to safely walk or cycle the entire coastline of a major city harbour, continually touching the water’s edge.

Great Harbour Way needs political commitment NOW

Celia Wade-Brown says "Let's look at the Great Harbour Way and plan for its implementation sooner than later."

A wide scenic route from Wellington to Hutt would be terrific for recreation and commuting.

It's shameful that tourists coming off the ferry from South Island can't cycle or walk along our magnificent harbour in either direction.

Wellington has a lovely waterfront and Petone's foreshore is attractive but there is an ABYSS between.

Kick The Habit – more people walking more often!

For World Environment Day, Living Streets Aotearoa members are installing pou hikoi or “walking poles” in walkable communities throughout Wellington. The poles are painted black and white like a pedestrian crossing with shoes walking up and onwards! [see http://livingstreets.org.nz/foot_art.htm]

The poles will be up from Queen’s Birthday weekend in time for World Environment Day on the 5th of June.
