City Rail Link above-ground opportunities identified

Development opportunities for up to 20ha of new Auckland CBD and fringe city floor space have been identified around the $3.4 billion City Rail Link, as the time to award the tunnelling and station contracts draws near.

Images have been released showing development potential of the land once the project is done.

AK Have your say is on now

Since 2010, Auckland has grown by 218,000 people. In 30 years there will be another 720,000 people living here.

Managing this growth requires planning, long-term thinking and investment.

Auckland Council can’t do this alone. We want your views on the future of our city and what we should be working towards over the next 30 years.

From 28 February to 28 March, we’re consulting on our 10-year Budget, as well as the draft Auckland Plan 2050. We also want to know what you think about our Pest Management Plan and our Waste Management and Minimisation Plan.

Pedestrian-friendly main street for Manukau

The upgrade of Putney Way into a pedestrian-friendly main street for central Manukau starts next week. The upgrade will include a new single-level surface extending from the new bus station to the opposite pathway.

Native trees will be planted along both sides of the street to make up rain gardens that help to clean stormwater before it reaches the drains.

New lighting will also be installed to create a stronger sense of safety for evening commuters and residents. A local group has been invited to design artwork for the light panels.

82 state homes replace 16 in Auckland's New Lynn

The Thom Street development in New Lynn will have be fully completed by mid 2020 with the first homes ready in the first half of 2019, and will home 292 people.
