Public’s input sought on plans for Mt Albert station

Mt Albert residents, business people and commuters are invited to have their say on ideas to link Mt Albert’s town centre with the railway station.

Auckland City is hosting a public meeting at the Mt Albert Presbyterian Church next Wednesday, 3 November, at 7pm.

The meeting follows preliminary community and business workshops held in March 2004, to find out what the local community valued about the town centre, what needed improving and particularly, what could be done to better link the railway station with the surrounding community.

Based on these contributions, Auckland City has developed early ideas for Mt Albert, including: upgrades and improved access to the station a proposed town plaza linking the station and Mt Albert Road a pedestrian and cycle network improvements to visibility and safety at the station redevelopment of properties to better link the station and businesses.

“This is the public’s opportunity to have their say on the plans we’ve developed for Mt Albert station,” says Penny Pirrit, environmental planning manager. “Auckland City encourages individuals and businesses to get involved in the project to improve the area and let us know what they think.”

Mt Albert’s station upgrade has been identified as a priority by Auckland City and Auckland Regional Transport Limited, which manages the region’s rail stations. The upgrade will follow those now underway at Kingsland, Baldwin Ave and Morningside. The project aims to provide high-quality environments around stations and adjoining town centres.

Venue: Mt Albert Presbyterian Church, 14 Mt Albert Road, Mt Albert Time: 7 – 9pm Date: Wednesday, 3 November 2004
