About the project
We're working to upgrade Federal Street to create pedestrian-friendly spaces, where people can work and play.
When complete, the upgrades to Federal Street will form part of Auckland city centre’s ‘laneway circuit’ (a concept from Auckland's City Centre Masterplan), designed to open up urban spaces and provide routes with good pedestrian access and opportunities for people to connect, enjoy outdoor areas, and access cycleways throughout other areas of the city.
The project is being implemented in four stages.
Stage one is already complete, which upgraded the area between Victoria Street and Wellesley Street.
Stage two will focus on the section of Federal Street between Mayoral Drive and Wellesley Street. In this stage we're creating a shared space, adding new plantings, and installing new lighting to make Federal Street more pedestrian and cycle-friendly.
Stages three and four will develop Federal Street from Victoria Street to Fanshawe Street.
Stage one is complete. Construction for stage two is expected to begin in 2020 and take approximately 12 months.
We are currently in the concept design phase for stages three and four with staging to be determined.
