Wait for re­port

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 shut out on Novem­ber 6 from hav­ing a say be­cause of a cler­i­cal er­ror. Auck­land Trans­port says it will not com­ment pub­licly while the re­view is un­der way. The Auck­land City Har­bour News’ Novem­ber 12 story on the sub­ject should have said Waitem­ata Lo­cal Board’s lawyer is Nick Whit­ting­ton.
