We’re making improvements to High Street to reflect the growing and changing community in the city centre. High Street will be safer with better access for its increasing numbers of pedestrians.
The project focuses on ideas to improve the street environment using a lighter and faster approach resulting in minimal disruption to business.
We're collaborating with Heart of the City, High Street businesses and residents to trial ideas to improve pedestrian access, the way rubbish is collected, address traffic congestion, and create better access for the delivery of goods and services.
Using what we learn testing ideas in High Street, we expect to create longer-lasting changes in the next five to ten years. There will be public consultation on these plans.
Auckland Council recently held a consultation, which closed on 18 October 2019, to refresh the City Centre Masterplan. We are currently analysing the feedback and will add new design concepts to the masterplan based on this feedback.
