Submission Guide: Let’s Get Welly Moving (LGWM) Scenarios – Submissions Close 15 December 2017

The Short Version

Got five minutes? Read the info below then submit now!

Let’s Get Welly Moving (LGWM) still wants the option to build a motorway flyover (which they call a bridge) at the Basin Reserve!

LGWM has released four scenarios. These scenarios are very vague, but three of the four leave open the possibility of a Basin Reserve flyover:

  • Scenario A, if adopted, would not involve a flyover at the Basin.
  • Scenarios B, C or D could see a Basin flyover being built.

Here are alternative proposals and submission guides from other transport groups:

Submit before 15 December. You don’t have to go through the whole LGWM form. You can just comment on Scenario A (Step 1, near the bottom of that page), then skip to Step 6 to fill in your details and submit the form.

Tell LGWM something like:

Scenario A may be acceptable. However, I need more detail of what Scenario A involves before I can be sure. I reject Scenarios B, C and D.


Scenario A+ from FIT Wellington looks very promising and improves on Scenario A. I want to see Scenario A+ developed further. I reject Scenarios B, C and D.

and then add your other comments.

  1. Here is my reframing of wording supporting the submission guide….

    Prime Minister Jacinda Ardern, Minister of Transport Phil Twyford, and Associate Minister Julie Anne Genter have all signalled a determination to take real, meaningful action on climate change, flawed transport priorities, and road safety. However, we need to maintain our pressure on Local Government and the Transport Agency (NZTA) for significant investment in public transport and demand management proposals now, to avoid the chance of the motorway lobby being able to push through a new Basin Reserve flyover roading proposal here in Wellington – that will further threaten the livability of our city.
