Manners St has become notorious for incidents between buses and pedestrians.

In August, a person was injured on the stretch of road between Taranaki St and Cuba St.

A young man was left in serious condition in July this year, after he was struck by a bus on Manners St outside the Opera House.

At least 16 people have been hit by buses on Wellington's Golden Mile since 2010.
