Million-dollar dumps: Publicly owned properties fall to rack and ruin

Caroline Williams Reporter from Auckland Stuff

To the side of East Auckland’s Te Ara ki Uta ki Tai cycleway, nestled in overgrown greenery, is a building that wouldn’t get a second glance if it weren’t for hot pink graffiti.

The house, owned by Auckland Council subsidiary Auckland Transport, was used as a site office by Waka Kotahi NZ Transport Agency staff working on the $46 million cycleway between Glen Innes to Tāmaki Drive, Auckland Transport spokesman Mark Hannan said.

But locals say the property has been all but destroyed by vandals since the cycleway was completed in 2016.

The property is one of several that have become run down and derelict under the ownership of local government.
