Tree saga up­date

Auckland City Harbour News - - NEWS -

The fate of six po­hutukawa on Great North Rd may be known by Christ­mas. Auck­land Trans­port says a re­port from in­de­pen­dent com­mis­sion­ers on a pro­posal to re­move and re­place the trees is due in De­cem­ber. The trees, be­lieved to be 80 years old, stand in the way of the $70 mil­lion St Lukes mo­tor­way project. More than 50 res­i­dents and groups fight­ing to save the trees were last week shut out from hav­ing a say due to a cler­i­cal er­ror.
