About the project
We're completing the upgrade of this section of Tyler Street in Britomart, between Te Komititanga and Commerce Street.
The design will be similar to what we've done on Galway Street, making this street a safe shared space for people with accessibility needs, people walking, riding bikes or scooters.
This work is part of the Britomart Precinct Upgrade programme and made possible by the city centre targeted rate.
Why are we doing this work?
This upgrade is guided by the City Centre Masterplan which seeks to create a pedestrian-scale city, full of beautiful public spaces in an expanding laneway network.
This section of Tyler Street is an important connection between Te Komititanga and the Britomart precinct and will complements the high-quality network of public and shared spaces, including Te Komititanga, Commercial Bay, Galway Street, the Waitematā Station (Britomart) plaza (once complete) and Takutai Square.
What is involved
Tyler Street will be constructed in conjunction with the reinstatement of the Waitematā Station (Britomart) plaza. We’ll provide more information about the construction programme once a construction contractor is appointed in early 2024.
The council group are committed to managing the impacts of construction on people who are living, working, and travelling through the area.
The design for Tyler Street is very similar to the completed Galway Street (shown below). The upgrade will transform Tyler Street from a road corridor to a high-quality pedestrian focused street, connecting Te Komititanga to Britomart and Takutai Square through an attractive new laneway.
Work on Tyler Street and the adjacent station plaza is planned to begin in autumn 2024 and will take around one year to complete.
