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.

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.
