Nation-building transport projects to grow NZ

The Chris Hipkins Government today announced a nation-building transport programme which will grow the economy and create jobs, help Kiwi households and businesses cut emissions, and help Kiwis get around our regions and cities faster and safer.
As part of this programme, the Government has identified 14 key strategic projects for Waka Kotahi to consider as it develops its next 10-year National Land Transport Plan.

The routes are:

  • Warkworth to Whangārei – State Highway 1; Te Hana to Brynderwyns, Warkworth to Wellsford and Whangārei to Brynderwyns
  • Auckland Northwest Rapid Transit
  • Auckland third and fourth rail line expansion
  • Avondale to Onehunga rail link
  • Level crossing upgrade and removal – Auckland and Wellington  
  • Cambridge to Piarere – State Highway 1
  • Tauranga to Tauriko – State Highway 29
  • Wellington CBD to Airport – second Mount Victoria Tunnel and upgrades to Basin Reserve/Arras Tunnel
  • Wellington CBD to Island Bay – Mass Rapid Transit
  • Napier to Hastings – four-laning State Highway 2
  • Nelson (Rocks Road) shared path – State Highway 6
  • Richmond – Hope Bypass – State Highway 6
  • Christchurch Northern Link – State Highway 1
  • Ashburton Bridge – State Highway 1

Government delivers new regime to protect renters and property owners

The Government has delivered the next step to protect renters and property owners by introducing a regulatory regime for residential property managers.

Associate Housing Minister Barbara Edmonds says housing plays a fundamental role in improving the wellbeing of all New Zealanders. 

“Today we’ve introduced a Bill that protects renters and property owners by ensuring all residential property managers are qualified and accountable.

“Nearly one in three households rent in New Zealand with the residential property management sector responsible for around half of the rental market. While many residential property managers abide by professional standards, there’s no current legal requirement for them to do so.

Is this the most expensive retirement village in NZ?

Million dollar harbour views are just one of the features offered in a new luxury retirement village in Auckland’s Wynyard Quarter, but they do not come cheap.

NZX listed Winton Land Limited has branched out into the “later living” market, with its subsidiary Northbrook.

It had five villages under development around the country, but its vertical village on the waterfront in Wynyard Quarter was the first to launch.

The village would have 154 apartments, including 50 aged care suites, with five-star hotel service, and premium amenities.
