Victoria Street Cycleway


Downer NZ


Auckland CBD


Current (still constructing)


Downer were awarded the contract for this project right before Christmas 2019, with a start date of 27th December 2019 and a very ambitious completion target of the end of February 2020, to fall in line with a major change in bus routes throughout the central city. The project involved a major upgrade of the Victoria St/Wellesley St/Halsey St intersection, as well as kerb buildout, new bus stops and footpath widening along a 800m long section of road to provide for dedicated cycle lanes in both directions.


Parallaxx were given 3 days to complete full staging drawings for the project and meet the AT imposed submission deadline. 3 days later, using Parallaxx specialist TMP design team, we delivered on this. From there, Parallaxx consultancy and admin team worked through the submission and approval processes with AT and Service Disruptions, as well as coordinating work clash and design coordination with neighbouring projects that were to run concurrently over the Christmas, New Year period. Parallaxx Traffic Managers were engaged to then facilitate the on site longterm traffic setup, overseeing and coordinating the implementation of stage 1 on the night of the 27th December, which involved surveying in and re line marking of the entire carriageway to create working space required.


The initial stages of the project, which included the significant bulk of work were completed on time. Partnering with Parallaxx provided a full suite of services, from initial TTM design, to submission, approvals and coordination, through to on site services for the implementation of the project. Parallaxx undertook direct liaison with Downer subcontractors, Auckland Transports Engineer Rep, CAR managers, Client Project Manager and some key stakeholders throughout the project to assist with the best outcome for all. The remainder of work was then being completed with overnight closures, until the project was then disrupted by the COVID-19 lockdown; we are now exploring and providing alternate solutions to support the fastest expedition of the remaining works compliantly throughout the COVID-19 lockdown levels.
