Building and shaping a city: Future-proofing Auckland transport infrastructure

The Government is bringing Auckland’s transport infrastructure into the future by moving forward with an additional Waitematā Harbour crossing, progressing light rail from Auckland’s CBD to the airport, and creating a linked-up rapid transport network as part of a 30-year plan.

  • Key decisions on additional Waitematā Harbour crossing to be brought forward to 2023, to integrate with light rail and with new rapid transit to the North Shore and North West
  • Govt selects partially-tunnelled light rail from Auckland CBD–Airport, becoming the spine of Auckland’s future transport network
  • Selected light rail option will see transport available every five minutes from approx. 18 stops, cutting travel times from CBD to Airport in half for many
  • Accelerating our economic recovery with the creation of up to 97,000 new jobs, and 66,000 homes by 2051
  • Business support package to be developed alongside affected businesses

Calling all designers for the next stage of Wynyard Quarter’s transformation

Over the past 15 years, Aucklanders have experienced the transformation of their inner-city waterfront to a world-class destination that excites the senses and celebrates our sea-loving Pacific culture and maritime history.

The next stage of this multi-decade transformation will build on this legacy of the much-loved and celebrated Wynyard Quarter and will focus on the land and water surrounding this area.

Eke Panuku, the city’s urban development agency, is calling for expressions of interest from designers, or a design cohort, looking for the once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to be a part of the team providing inspiring and innovative design responses for the public realm and open space as part of the continued regeneration of Wynyard Quarter.

Countdown seeks partner for $60m Rolleston distribution centre

Countdown is seeking an investment partner to help fund its proposed new distribution centre at Rolleston, on the outskirts of Christchurch in what will be Canterbury’s biggest ever industrial offering.

The $60 million state-of-the-art build will begin shortly and is scheduled for completion mid next year. It will provide the Countdown network with a purpose built distribution facility for its fresh and perishable product lines.

Sam Staite, director of industrial for Colliers, said Woolworths – the owner of Countdown - is looking for a long-term partner, for an initial sale and leaseback of the Christchurch Fresh Distribution Centre spanning 15 years.
