In September 2020 Whanganui Town Centre Regeneration secured central government funding to install a people-friendly streetscape in lower Victoria Avenue.
Lower Victoria Avenue is Whanganui’s primary dining and nightlife location and the changes will enhance the area as a hospitality and entertainment zone, while celebrating the street’s heritage and history.
Funding comes from Waka Kotahi NZ Transport Agency’s Innovating Streets initiative, which supports councils to experiment with making streets more vibrant, people-friendly and responsive to climate change.
In recent months we’ve worked lower Victoria Avenue stakeholders to develop a concept design for the street.
We’re asking for your feedback on the concept design now and we’ll be asking for ongoing feedback as the project becomes a reality.
