Wellingtonians are divided over car use and parking, feedback shows, as transformational mass rapid transit project Let’s Get Wellington Moving publishes the public’s response to proposals for light rail and a second Mt Victoria tunnel.

Access for private vehicles and parking was the most contentious issue in the report, which was released on Tuesday, which says “there was divided sentiment as to whether the goal should be to reduce or improve overall access to the network for vehicles”.

There were 881 comments saying the options didn’t go far enough to reduce private vehicle use and car dependency, while 404 comments suggested retaining or improving access.

The vast majority of people who responded were in favour of improvements to transport options throughout the city.
