Unlocking world's most liveable city
Fully funded integrated land use plan key to unlocking
world's most liveable city
Mayor Len Brown's draft Auckland Plan to create the "world's most liveable city" will be released for public comment in just a few weeks. The following article appeared in Tuesdays Infrastructure Supplement in the New Zealand Herald.
Top of the list of issues to be resolved is the funding and synchronisation of key city shaping transport investments, including the central city rail loop and the next harbour crossing.
A plan cannot be implemented without funding. Taken together, these two projects, along with the arterial roading, bus and other public transport investments needed, will require at least an additional $10 billion in funding. Add on rail to the airport and to the North Shore and the funding deficit doubles to $20 billion.
NZCID would be keen to hear your feedback on this article.
