Major changes to Auckland’s city centre around the corner

Construction in the city centre will ramp up from the start of 2020 as the next phase of the city centre development programme gets underway.

Construction on the City Rail Link’s tunnels and the new Aotea and Karangahape Stations will accelerate in the new year. Several long-term road closures, partial closures and diversions are planned around Wellesley Street, Victoria Street, Pitt Street and Beresford Square.  (The Wellesley and Victoria Streets will not be closed at the same time)

Mt Eden Station will be closed from June 2020 until 2024, allowing for underground tunnelling and a complete upgrade of the station itself.

South Auckland residents in strife over Māori housing building project

Residents in the South Auckland suburb of Ōtara say they're deeply concerned after being left in the dark about a Māori Mental Health and Addictions housing complex being built near a number of schools.

The building project by the Mahitahi Kainga Trust has been three years in the making and includes a community Manaaki building as well as a housing facility for vulnerable Māori.

Despite council advice to consult with the community during the process, residents say they only found out about the building project three months ago when construction began.
