Upgrades to a section of Gaunt Street between Halsey Street and Daldy Streets are now complete, providing better pedestrian and cycling facilities.
Auckland Transport’s Group Manager for Major Capital, David Nelson says, “Gaunt Street opened to vehicles and pedestrians last week, with the latest work transforming the area into a pedestrian and cycle-friendly space with high quality street furniture, paving and lush planting.
“The completion of the work marks another milestone for Wynyard Quarter and opens up the area for better pedestrian and traffic flow to support the greater number of people expected into the area in the future.”
Project Manager for Hawkins (now Downer) Glen Maria says, “It’s been a challenging project, with deep services, tidal flows, and reclaimed land, but the finished streets look great.
“We’re proud to be a part of the regeneration works in Wynyard Quarter and are looking forward to the next phases.”
The Wynyard Quarter area is being progressively transformed in to a more pedestrian and cycle friendly area, and a world-class waterfront for Aucklanders. When the Wynyard Quarter is fully developed by 2030, it will be home to around 3,000 residents and 25,000 workers.
Auckland Transport is currently planning the delivery of the next stage of work including the upgrade of Daldy Street, between Fanshawe Street and Pakenham Street, and the adjacent linear park and central park. This next stage of exciting work is expected to commence in 2018.
