City scores in sur­vey

Auckland City Harbour News - - NEWS -

Auck­land has main­tained its po­si­tion as the world’s third most live­able city in the 2012 Mercer Qual­ity of Liv­ing sur­vey, and is the high­est-ranked city in the Asia-Pa­cific re­gion.

Mercer ranks Auck­land third be­hind Vi­enna and Zurich.

The high­est rank­ing Asia-Pa­cific cities af­ter Auck­land are Syd­ney at 10, Welling­ton at 13, Mel­bourne at 17 and Perth at 21.

But while Auck­land sits third over­all, it only man­ages 43rd po­si­tion for in­fra­struc­ture.

‘‘I’m pleased to see that Auck­land has main­tained its place in the Mercer sur­vey,’’ mayor Len Brown says.

‘‘We know there is still a lot of work to be done. Our trans­port in­fra­struc­ture puts us be­hind other cities on the in­ter­na­tional in­dices, and hand­i­caps our peo­ple and our econ­omy.’’
