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.

In 2021 Napier City Council trialled changes to improve the way West Quay worked as an area shared by vehicles, cyclists, pedestrians and businesses overlooking the inner harbour.

These changes were in place for several months and following positive feedback, a move was made to make them permanent. These changes included:

  • A new footpath on the street's hospitality side, with planting separating the path from the outdoor dining areas
  • A one-way shared vehicle and bike lane for north-bound traffic
  • A dedicated cycle way for south-bound cyclists, so the path connected with the existing cycleway on either side of West Quay
  • Changing the angle parking to parallel parking to accommodate the cycleway.

The last part of the project to be completed is a boardwalk, which replaces the green temporary surface. The planters have been moved to separate the wharf from the shared path on the opposite side of the road to the business premises.


To be completed July 2023, weather permitting.


Council was awarded $200,000 through the Waka Kotahi’s Innovating Streets for People Fund for this project, which was completed in 2021. This boardwalk will cost approximately $150,000, funded by Council.
