Why your views matter

This survey is seeking your feedback on two neighbourhood changes around Hayes Paddock – at the intersection of Jellicoe Drive and Plunket Terrace.

Why are we making these changes?

The Y-intersection of Plunket Terrace and Jellicoe Drive has safety and accessibility issues such as:

  • U-turns on the intersection
  • poor visibility of pedestrians
  • high entry speeds into Plunket Terrace.

The project will provide the following improvements:

  • a new community space outside Hayes Common Café
  • safe connections between the street, the beach, River path and playground
  • raised pedestrian crossings and new road markings
  • installation of wayfinding signage
  • bike parking.

There will be changes to some of the on-street parking in this area as well.

Bus stop relocation and upgrade will also be happening when new toilet/changing facilities for the Wellington Beach are upgraded in 2024.

  • You are welcome to comment on one or both of the changes.
  • All named entries will go into a draw for $120 voucher at Hayes Common café and there will be 10 lucky spot prizes of $10 vouchers.
