It includes an independent chair being appointed to the board, three new leadership positions, and a commitment to getting spades in the ground this year.
Wellington Mayor Andy Foster told Mike Hosking it's a start, after countless issues were uncovered.
He says they included large numbers of positions filled with temporary contractors.
The Minister of Transport wants some parts of Let's Get Wellington Moving shovel-ready by the end of the year.

They agreed to shake up the governance of the project and a focus on walking, cycling and bus improvements over the next three years.
Michael Wood says it's now time to move forward with the delivery of these projects.
