Auckland Light Rail process ended

Cabinet has agreed to end the twin track Auckland Light Rail process and refer the project to the Ministry of Transport for further work, Transport Minister Phil Twyford says.

Despite extensive cross-party consultation, Government parties were unable to reach agreement on a preferred proposal. The future of the project will now be decided by the government following September’s general election.

Phil Twyford says two credible and deliverable proposals were received.

City Rail Link: Work begins on biggest railway station in New Zealand

Auckland's $4.4 billion City Rail Link passed another milestone on 23 June when dignitaries and construction workers attended a ceremony to mark work starting on a new underground station in the central city.

"What the hell are you doing to my town? Whenever I come into the city there is a great big hole," said Transport Minister Phil Twyford, who enjoyed flicking the switch on a huge ground cutting machine that will start work on the perimeter walls.

Twyford was joined by Mayor Phil Goff at the controls of the 90-tonne machine, built in India especially for the project, and named Sandrine in honour of a woman working for a CRL contractor.

Buyers jostle for position as hospital land sale approved

The sale of vacant land at Blenheim's Wairau Hospital has been given final sign-off nearly 20 years after the idea was first floated, reigniting interest from several groups eyeing up the block for possible housing projects.

The 6-hectare block on the hospital's eastern side has been considered surplus since 2001, but the sale had languished in the statutory process. A spokesman for Health Minister David Clark confirmed he approved the sale in May.

However, the land still needed a proper valuation and there was no timeline for when the block would finally be listed for sale. There was still a statutory process to follow, Nelson Marlborough Health finance performance and facilities general manager Eric Sinclair said.
