Tunnel gets ARC backing
A motorway tunnel from Waterview to Mt Roskill has been supported by Auckland Regional Council.
The council endorsed the plan in principal at a transport committee meeting last week.
The decision follows Auckland City Council’s backing for the project, despite objections from Waterview residents.
The regional council will also tell Transit the route should allow for cycling, walking and passenger transport.
Concerns about heritage sites, open space, Oakley Creek, and local schools and kindergartens were also noted.
Feedback on the proposed tunnel closed on Friday.
