Poll: Are you confident Auckland's light rail project will go ahead?

Caryn Wilkinson Reporter from Community News

Auckland mayor Phil Goff says an announcement could be made soon on Auckland's light rail.

The $6 billion project to revive a tram network in Auckland was one of Labour's initial election promises in 2017.

After Prime Minister Jacinda Ardern's big victory on October 17, the light rail system connecting the airport to Auckland's central city may finally get off the ground.

But Transport Minister Phil Twyford alluded key decisions are still to be made.

Twyford said in June the governing parties could not agree on a preferred proposal and the future of the project would be decided by the new Government following the election.

Ripu Bhatia Reporter from Auckland Stuff

Hi neighbours,

An exciting way to stay active during the Covid-19 lockdown, explore Auckland and win prizes has arrived in the form of the Street Art Bike Challenge.

To participate people simple need to snap a photo of themselves, their bike, a piece of street art, and share the photo with the hashtag #streetartbikechallenge.

The event will run throughout October and aims to encourage people to cycle around the city and stay active throughout the Covid-19 lockdown.

It is being hosted by EcoMatters Bike Hubs, who have compiled a map of over 200 street art pieces around Auckland to get people started.

Over $1000 worth in prizes are up for grabs. Will you be participating in the Street Art Bike Challenge?
