This great photo by Richard Joseph shows just how wide Quay St is and how much it is focused on the movement of vehicles.
All up the width between the buildings and the red fence/Ferry building is about 30m. Here’s an example of what would fit in that width.
- Two footpaths, wider on the seaward side.
- Bidirectional cycle lane
- Light rail line to connect Wynyard Quarter to Britomart and eventually up Queen St. Can also be used for bus lanes.
- Two general traffic lanes (there will likely still be some need for general traffic access but with a narrowed road and other traffic calming measures they wouldn’t be practical as an arterial route like they are now).
- Each mode separated by raised and planted medians with frequent gaps for easy pedestrian access to the waterfront.
