My position on Queen Street

I support the Centre City Master Plan vision for Waihorotiu/Queen Street Valley:

 A vibrant pedestrian priority shopping street at the heart of Waihorotiu / Queen Street Valley - Queen Street will support centre-running transit (starting with buses) and become the centrepiece of a greatly expanded pedestrian priority and low emissions zone

We must move unnecessary traffic – that is, outside of access, delivery, and service vehicles –elsewhere. I want to see public spaces with flourishing trees, teeming with locals, families, office workers and students eating lunch.  There should be safe, separated lanes for bikes and scooters and people arriving by bus and train from all over the city to work, eat, shop, and hang out together.
