Upper Beach Street in central Queenstown could become the town’s second permanent pedestrian mall, depending on the outcome of a month-long formal consultation.

In February the Council began trialling a partial pedestrianisation at the request of the Downtown QT. After considering informal feedback on the trial, the Council has now agreed to undertake formal consultation on the proposal to declare the section of Beach Street from Camp Street to Cow Lane as a permanent pedestrian mall. Vehicle access would be restricted to goods service vehicles between 5am and 10am, with emergency services having access at all time.
