The Auckland CBD and public transport

Sue from New Lynn

Right now I am really over commuting around Dorkland(aka Auckland). The traffic congestion is just far too much.

I am going to give lower Albert Street a name change. Much along the lines of that movie Nightmare on Elm Street I am thinking much of Albert Street should be renamed Nightmare on Albert Street.

To have the NX1 and the other Shore buses converging on an area with ONLY ONE lane is ridiculous.

I use public transport in the evening to get from my place of work, on the Shore, back to New Lynn. Lower Albert Street especially from say the Shakespeare Tavern to Quay Street is pathetic now.

The awful thing is alot businesses and people using Albert Street are probably fed up to the back teeth with all the delays etc. It's like the so-called CRL is being dragged out too bloody long for many. And we have been told it could go on for another 5 bloody years. How many businesses along Albert Street in particular will go under whilst all that mess is going on????!!!!

 The mess that the Auckland CBD has become is off-putting to anyone who thinks a good outing for the day is to go into the Auckland CBD.

We’re adjusting the electorate boundaries

Electoral Commission

We’re adjusting our electorate boundaries for the next two general elections.

By making sure each electorate has about the same number of people, we can give all New Zealanders equal representation in Parliament. It’s all balance.
If we move one of your electorate boundaries, you could end up in a different electorate to the one you’re in now – so we show you what we’re proposing before we make any changes and give you the opportunity to share your thoughts.
