Victoria Street Wellington

  • Realigning, widening and significantly improving the footpaths on both sides
  • Retaining the existing road width to allow for future bus and cycling improvements
  • Developing two new paved parks – one at the corner of Dixon Street (Volunteer Corner) and the other near the intersection with Vivian Street where the triangular slipway is at the moment
  • Planting more than 55 street trees to give the street more of a boulevard feel
  • A new southbound cycle lane
  • A new left-turn lane onto Vivian Street
  • Evening peak-hour clearways on both sides of the road between Vivian and Abel Smith streets.

The project utilises three custom Terrazzo Veneto colours using several of the Peter Fell colours, the surface texture is a honed paver for ease of maintenance in a CBD environment. All pavers are being installed on the Instarmac bedding. Pavers are being jointed using the Instarmac Flowable grouting system.
