Wellington is served by State Highway 1 in the west and State Highway 2 in the east, meeting at the Ngauranga Interchange north of the city centre, where SH 1 runs through the city to the airport. Road access into the capital is constrained by the mountainous terrain — between Wellington and the Kapiti Coast, SH 1 travels along the Centennial Highway, a narrow section of road, and between Wellington and Wairarapa SH 2 transverses the Rimutaka Ranges on a similar narrow winding road.
Wellington has two motorways, both part of SH 1: the Johnsonville—Porirua Motorway and the Wellington Urban Motorway , which in combination with a small non-motorway section in the Ngauranga Gorge connect Porirua with Wellington city.

Wellington Electricity owns and operates the local distribution network.
In the year to March , Wellington Electricity disclosed the average customer spent just 55 minutes without power due to unplanned outages.
