As you will be aware the New Hospital Build is going to alter the infrastructure of the Dunedin CBD – including the city’s transport network, which needs to support the hospital’s new location.
There is a current proposal (which is part of the Shaping Future Dunedin Transport Programme Business Case) involves introducing a northbound lane to the southbound State Highway1 route, and turning Cumberland Street into a two-way local road. It is believed this will promote transformational change, make Cumberland Street a more “people-focused local road”, enhance the pedestrian environment and make walking and cycling more attractive.
Business South recognises any significant change to Dunedin’s transport network may have an impact on many businesses, so we would like to gain a better understanding of businesses’ experiences and insights so we can respond to the Otago Daily Time’s recent coverage of this issue.
We would appreciate if you would complete a simple (5 minute) Pulse Check survey.
Please note the survey closes on Monday, 21 February @ 5.00pm – and responses are anonymous.

Thank you in advance for participating in our Pulse Check. Like the Dunedin City Council, Waka Kotahi and the Otago Regional Council, we support a transport network that provides the best long-term transport and urban mobility options for Dunedin – and with your feedback we can ensure that local businesses’ voices play a part in ensuring this happens.
