Midtown including Te Hā Noa - Victoria Street Linear Park

Changes are coming to the city centre’s midtown area, with a particular focus on the connections from Albert Park in the east, across the Queen Street gully, to Victoria Park in the west.

Victoria Street will be improved as a connecting route for people walking and cycling, with Te Hā Noa - a linear park of green and inviting spaces - linking the two parks.

Construction of the first stage of the project, the section of Victoria Street between Federal Street and Queen Street is currently planned for Q4 of 2023 to align with City Rail Link’s work on Victoria Street and the two entrances from Victoria Street to Aotea Station.

Wellesley Street will become the major east-west bus route, helping to get growing numbers of workers, visitors and residents around efficiently.

Once CRL works are complete, development will begin for Aotea Central, a 21-story mixed use residential, commercial and retail development above Aotea Station.

More specific information for each of the related projects will be available soon and there will be opportunities to get closer to the details and give feedback.
