The Auckland City Centre Masterplan (CCMP) presents a vision for Wai Horotiu Valley, as a vibrant shopping and commercial area, prioritising pedestrians and public transport.

As part of this vision, the Wai Horotiu Queen Street Project is working towards transforming Queen Street to become more accessible, more attractive, and more prosperous, with better connections to the rest of the City Centre. This project aims to enhance the street environment by providing significantly more space for pedestrians, cyclists, and other wheeled users.  It will deliver incremental changes to the street, by making network changes to remove unnecessary end-to-end through traffic.

This project used a co-design process to seek feedback from the community to inform the design. Stellar Projects worked with Auckland Council and Auckland Transport, facilitating the co-design, engagement, and evaluation process that has seen businesses, residents, property owners, and users help shape changes to Queen Street. We are also proud to have worked alongside Auckland Transport and LandLab during the design phases.

During the lifecycle of this project, we have also been providing monitoring, evaluation, and analysis services to offer key insights, as the project progresses. We continue to provide ongoing stakeholder engagement and relationship management, alongside contractors JFC, during the construction delivery phase.
