The last few stages of the Queen Street upgrade are underway
As part of creating a more beautiful, pedestrian-friendly street, the final stages of the Queen Street project are finally underway! As we understand, there will no longer be any general parking on the street. However, loading and mobility spaces, in addition to essential vehicles areas will remain.
Making the CBD greener and more appealing
You can also expect much wider paths stretching from the bottom of Queen Street all the way up to Aotea Square. They will feature space for pedestrians and a multi-use lane for slower cyclists and scooter riders.
This ‘golden mile’ is designed to “humanise the street and draw people back to the city”, says Councillor Chris Darby, chair of the planning committee. The area will also feature mature trees and planters filled with native foliage for a greener and more appealing feel.
Mayor Phil Goff says it’s all part of giving Auckland a world-class and people-friendly city centre, particularly since the CBD was hard-hit by Covid lockdowns. “It will help rejuvenate Queen Street, drive the recovery from COVID-19 and create a city centre that will draw people from Auckland, New Zealand and eventually around the world to visit, work, shop, live and enjoy.”
