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.

Poll: Queen Street redesign revealed - what are your thoughts?

Ripu Bhatia Reporter from Central Leader

Auckland Council has revealed the final design of its Queen Street makeover.

Three projects to upgrade the city centre street have been rolled into one and will be completed over the next 12 months.

A key change is wider footpaths, that will be shared by people on feet and wheels.

The path closest to shops is for slower moving pedestrians, while the side closest to the street is for bikes, scooters and people moving quickly on foot.

Changes in paving texture, planting, street furniture will separate the two paths.

General parking on Queen Street will be removed, but space has been designated for loading zones along the street.

Between Wellesley and Wakefield Streets there will be two lanes in each direction reserved for buses, motorcycles, delivery and emergency vehicles, cyclists and scooters. Private vehicles will not be allowed here.

What do you think of the planned makeover of Queen Street?
