New Lynn To Get New Walkways, Cycleways And Lighting

As part of the redevelopment of New Lynn, Waitakere City Council is making improvements to the area’s roading network and providing new walkways, cycleways and lighting.

Work begins on Wednesday, September 16, in Clark St.

The work will be completed in sections to minimise disruption and a deep sewer line is
being built by Watercare at the same time.

Motorists are advised to expect delays and use alternative routes if possible.

In some cases traffic will be diverted but businesses in the area have been assured access routes will be open or alternative routes provided.

The benefits from the improved transport infrastructure in New Lynn will be significant. Travel will be more efficient and it will be much easier to get around the area generally.

Eventually New Lynn will be a major sub-regional centre making it not just a desirable place to live but a sought-after place to locate business and create new jobs.

The council has a number of plans for the area including the redevelopment of the block between Great North Rd, Totara Ave and Memorial Drive as New Lynn’s character precinct (Merchant Quarter), residential intensification and an integrated mix of retail, commercial and residential land uses within the town centre linked through safe pedestrian and cycle connections.

The work will finish in October next year.

It wasn’t one of the four fancy P-8 Poseidons that the New Zealand taxpayer spent north of $3 billion to purchase and to equip, only a few years ago...
