As part of the Lets Get Wellington Moving recommended programme of investment, there is a proposal to develop a mass transit link between the central city to Newtown along the waterfront quays.

The estimated cost of this project is NZ$990 million (AU$947.8 million). This forms phase one of a broader project that will subsequently extend the mass transit link out to the airport via Miramar. The aim of this project is to improve travel choice through Wellington. The cost estimate is based on the use of light rail.

Still yet to be decided is the vehicle type, route choice and extensions, integration with the wider public transport network and funding options.

LGWM is a programme aimed at improving and better integrating Wellington's transport networks to ensure it is able to support forecast growth. It is a joint initiative between Wellington City Council, Greater Wellington Regional Council, and the New Zealand Transport Agency.
