Have your say on options for how we’ll travel around Wakatipu in the future.

Wider footpaths and better connections for walking and cycling, signalised intersections and bus priority lanes, better public transport facilities, streetscape upgrades and more techniques to manage parking in town.

These are just some of the options included in an emerging programme of work proposed to vastly improve our journeys through Frankton into and around Queenstown Town Centre (from Ladies Mile and the Kawarau Falls Bridge via State Highway 6 and 6A).

While it does seem pretty quiet at the moment while the district grapples with the effects of the ongoing COVID-19 global pandemic, the longer term prospects are strong. This is our ideal opportunity to get ahead of the game and make sure our transport system can cope with high numbers of people traveling, particularly at peak times well into the future. The Government has recently announced significant investment into the Wakatipu transport network. This includes $35m towards the Town Centre Upgrades (with a contribution of $22m by QLDC) and $50m for the alternative route (arterials stage 1). A further $90m is earmarked for public transport and walking and cycling upgrades on state highway 6 and 6a through the NZ Upgrade Programme.

We invite you to read through the proposed options and share your views on our plans for a more sustainable better connected transport network for Wakatipu.
