Johnsonville: Proposed new bus stop on Moorefield Road

Transport Choices

The current bus stop 3081 Johnsonville - Stop B(external link) (southbound) is a temporary arrangement pending the Mall redevelopment (owned by Stride Property Ltd). 

Proposed Changes

GWRC is working with Stride and Wellington City Council (WCC) to develop a fully integrated bus and rail transport hub; this is likely to take some time to work through.  In the interim, a new bus stop in Johnsonville, southbound on Moorefield Road is proposed - Stop D. 

The scoping of this project has been given the go-ahead as part of Transport Choices,(external link) a Waka Kotahi programme(external link) which aims to demonstrate that it's possible for communities to choose travel options that are good for all of us and our environment. 

Stop D would be an operational bus stop, giving resilience and continuity of service while a more permanent location is determined. This will be critical while Stop B is closed during the mall construction.  


This project will provide brand new fit-for-purpose bus shelters and other amenities including accessible infrastructure and Real Time Information (RTI) signage.  The space will also incorporate the proposed cycleway which is part of the wider Let’s Get Wellington Moving (LGWM) cycleway network.  

To make this happen, twenty car parks would need to be removed on Moorefield Road. There will also be moderate disruption on Moorefield Road in the construction phase.
