West Quay Co-design Initiative

Napier City Council has been awarded $200,000 funding through the Waka Kotahi NZ Transport Agency’s Innovating Streets for People Programme to trial some improvements to the way West Quay operates.

Napier City Council has temporarily transformed Ahuriri's West Quay into a pedestrian and cycle-friendly precinct.  This project is a partnership with Waka Kotahi, New Zealand Transport Agency and the community. 

The changes at West Quay are fast, tactical, non-permanent changes, which will remain in place for three months. This will enable Council to test a prototype street design before permanent changes may be made.

What this project means for residents?

  • A new footpath on the street's hospitality side, with planting separating the path from the outdoor dining areas.
  • A one-way system for north-bound traffic only, providing easier access for vehicle servicing the working wharf. 


Work commenced February 2021, end of trial is mid-May 2021


Napier City Council has been awarded $200,000 through the Waka Kotahi’s Innovating Streets for People Fund for this project.
