Wynyard Quarter Wynyard Quarter

Auckland Transport (AT) is leading the next phase of works in the southern section of Wynyard Quarter. This will continue the revitalisation of this part of the city centre to create vibrant, people-friendly spaces with a more-accessible waterfront.


Project status: Construction - last updated 10 December 2020.
Project zone: Central


Project overview

Wynyard Quarter is undergoing one of the largest urban regenerations in New Zealand, evolving from a publicly-restricted industrial port to a space where people can live, visit, be entertained, and do business.

The work focuses on establishing new connections between Wynyard Quarter, Victoria Park, and the city centre.

Working with Auckland Council, Panuku and Watercare, AT is transforming Westhaven Drive, Beaumont Street, Daldy Street, Gaunt Street, Halsey Street, and Pakenham Street into pedestrian- and cyclist-friendly environments with high-quality street furniture, paving, and landscaping.

We will:

  • Upgrade streets in the southern section and associated intersections to support alternative modes of transport.
  • Create a connected network for pedestrians and people on bikes.
  • Continue the Daldy Street Linear Park from Pakenham Street to Victoria Park.
  • Create a neighbourhood park (Amey Daldy Park) on the corner of Pakenham and Daldy Streets.
  • Install a new wastewater pump station and underground storage tank within Wynyard Common to increase capacity in the existing network and to accommodate future development.
  • Improve the quality of runoff stormwater by providing treatment before it is discharged into the harbour with new piping and low-impact design features such as rain gardens.
  • Upgrade bus stops.

Street, park and utility upgrades


AT is leading work in the southern section of Wynyard Quarter with major street, park and utility upgrades.

The project requires significant coordination with Panuku, Auckland Council, Watercare, private developers, and utility providers to allow construction of their projects to occur at the same time.

Find out more about the Wynyard Quarter regeneration on the Panuku website.

Upcoming work stages

  • Beaumont Street and Westhaven Drive street upgrades
  • Bi-directional cycleway on Beaumont Street

    • Gaunt Street and Beaumont Street
    • Westhaven Drive and Beaumont Street

  • Extending the Daldy Street Linear Park from Pakenham Street to Fanshawe Street.
  • Creating a neighbourhood park (Amey Daldy Park) at the corner of Pakenham Street and Daldy Street.
  • Street upgrades on Gaunt Street between Halsey and Daldy Streets.
  • Halsey Street upgrade between Fanshawe Street and Pakenham Street West.
  • Interim shared cycle path on Beaumont Street.

On-street parking changes

For many people, the appeal of the waterfront area is that there are fewer cars than the rest of the city. As areas of Wynyard Quarter are redeveloped to accommodate areas where pedestrians, cyclists and public transport can safely share the space, there will be a reduction of on-street parking.

At this stage the exact parking configuration on the remaining streets to be upgraded (Beaumont Street and the eastern end of Westhaven Drive) is yet to be finalised.

AT has made changes to on-street parking in the central city, which includes parking in Wynyard Quarter, removing parking restrictions and adopting a single approach to pricing. Find out more about the changes.

Intersection upgrades

To improve pedestrian and cyclist safety and help manage the flow of vehicles through the Quarter, as we work through the streets, we are going to signalise some intersections and add pedestrian crossing facilities. The final intersection upgrades to be delivered are:

  • Where Gaunt Street intersects Beaumont Street
  • Where Westhaven Drive intersects Beaumont Street.

Extending Daldy Street Linear Park

The revitalisation of the waterfront area has been carefully planned based on an Urban Design Framework that guided the city planning in this area, including the provision of a number of parks and open spaces.

The Daldy Street Linear Park has been extended from Pakenham Street to Victoria Park creating a people-friendly, green landscape connection between Victoria Park and the waterfront.

Daldy Street Linear Park and the Amey Daldy Park neighbourhood park are designed to be activated by adjacent retail and commercial activity within the Wynyard Quarter.

Amey Daldy neighbourhood park

In keeping with the concept of open and accessible public spaces, a neighbourhood park in the centre of Wynyard Quarter will be created within the Daldy Street Linear Park.

This small pocket park is envisioned as an intimate space for the residential apartments and office buildings which will eventually be built in the area.

At 70 metres x 49 metres it will be equivalent in size to Takutai Square in Britomart or Waitemata Plaza in Viaduct Harbour.

It will be a space for people who live and work in the area to take a break from being inside.

This park was opened in December 2020.

New wastewater pumping station

Watercare is working closely with Auckland Transport and Waterfront Auckland to coordinate the upgrade of the wastewater network in Wynyard Quarter. A new wastewater pump station and underground storage tank has been installed in Wynyard Common to increase capacity in the existing network and to accommodate future development.

The new pump station is connected to the existing network via a new 700 metre pipeline under Pakenham and Halsey Streets, to Victoria Street West.

Stormwater

To help improve the quality of runoff stormwater before it enters the harbour, new piping and low-impact landscape design such as rain gardens will continue to be used throughout Wynyard Quarter.

Cycling network

Increasingly, more people are choosing to cycle to work or for fun. The creation of cycle paths through Wynyard Quarter supports this and makes it easier to get around.

Find out more about AT’s cycling and walking programme.

Interim and long-term shared cycle paths

Construction of the cycling network has been timed to coincide with the Wynyard Quarter street upgrades.

A shared path has been completed on Beaumont Street between Jellicoe Street and Fanshawe Street, and then travelling behind 24 Westhaven Drive to connect to the Westhaven Promenade.

There is also an on-road cycling route from the eastern tip of Westhaven Drive into the city travelling along Beaumont Street-Gaunt Street-Viaduct Harbour Avenue -Customs Street West, terminating at the intersection with Market Place. This route is a more direct route into the city from Westhaven and is suitable for cyclists comfortable sharing the road with cars.

A bi-directional separated cycleway is planned for Beaumont Street.


Getting around the Quarter

When work is underway, road closures and detours will be required, impacting traffic in and around Wynyard Quarter. Road layout changes will be advised closer to construction starting.


Project objectives

The objectives for the Wynyard Quarter project are defined by the Auckland Council District Plan – Plan change 4, the Urban Design Framework and the Sustainable Development Framework.

The upgrades will support several of Auckland Council’s strategic objectives for the city defined in the Auckland Plan, the City Centre Master Plan and the Waterfront Plan.

The Waterfront Plan proposed enhanced accessibility for pedestrians and cyclists. It sets an ambitious 70/30 modal split (ie 70% of peak trips are by passenger transport, walking and cycling, and only 30% by private vehicle).
