Media release

New Lynn town centre development plans on show at public open day

Saturday 20 September
10.00am – 3.00pm
New Lynn Community Centre, Totara Avenue

New Lynn is on the verge of a long-awaited transformation of its town centre, starting with the construction of a one-kilometre-long trench that will separate road and rail.

To enable you to learn more about development plans for New Lynn, a public open day is being hosted by Waitakere City Council and ONTRACK on Saturday, September 20, 10am to 3pm, at the New Lynn Community Centre on Totara Avenue.

Come along and find out how ONTRACK plans to build the rail trench and underground station and what changes are needed to enable the construction to take place.

Information will also be available on the council’s draft strategy and concept plan for the redevelopment of the New Lynn town centre around its new transport infrastructure.

The concept reflects the unique history and character of New Lynn and provides a guide for the redevelopment of its commercial core, civic spaces and surrounding residential environs to create a mixed-use town centre that focuses more on people than cars.

The Auckland Regional Transport Authority (ARTA) will provide information on future developments and improvements in public transport.
