Make re­vamp cost-ef­fec­tive

Auckland City Harbour News - - Letters - SHONA WILKIN­SON San­dring­ham

I live near Eden Park and strongly agree with the opin­ions of the Eden Al­bert Com­mu­nity Board and other con­cerned res­i­dents in your ar­ti­cle on the pro­posed San­dring­ham Rd changes.

I hope the Auck­land City Coun­cil does fol­low through with con­sid­er­ing com­mon sense al­ter­na­tives.

Why use the bulk of the $22 mil­lion Eden Park Precinct bud­get for non-ur­gent works?

The coun­cil’s pro­posal to re­move or de­mol­ish res­i­den­tial 1 homes for a link lane should never have been an op­tion, and I’m sur­prised that the con­cept and de­sign work has been al­lowed to progress this far.

I would like to see only nec­es­sary, cost-ef­fec­tive changes to San­dring­ham Rd, and the sav­ings in­vested in new foot­paths, safer street lighting and power un­der­ground­ing for the streets sur­round­ing Eden Park.

Th­ese im­prove­ments would be ben­e­fi­cial for world cup vis­i­tors and of­fer long-term benefi to lo­cal res­i­dents and the com­mu­nity.
