Dunedin residents will have to wait to see the results of a survey that could be used in a business case to overhaul the way traffic moves through the centre of the city.

A spokeswoman for a multi-agency group, including the NZ Transport Agency and Dunedin City and Otago Regional Councils, that consulted on a suite of changes last month ahead of the new Dunedin hospital build, said the results would be made public "later this year" after they were "run past the governance group".

Halfway through the project’s first consultation period, just under 300 respondents wanted the retention of the two one-way state highways through the central city.
