Hill Street

Cycleway upgrade

5 March 2024

Work is about to begin on a new project in Hill Street Tasman District Council announces.

Council is about to launch into one of the final phases of the Richmond Streets for People projects by creating a safer cycling and walking connection between Champion Road and Queen Street along Hill Street.

This is a multi-faceted project incorporating separated cycle lanes, a section of shared footpath and a new low speed 30 kilometre an hour zone where vehicles and cyclists share the roadway.

Work is scheduled to begin in mid-March.

Most of the work only requires lane remarking so we're not anticipating widespread disruptions for road users the Council advised.

The Council believes the project dovetails nicely into the recently completed project to improve cycling and walking facilities in the adjacent William Street neighbourhood.
