Cit y upgrade plans cut back
Plans to upgrade central city streets have been changed to focus on peoplefriendly areas.
Wider pavements, more trees and stone paving will be added to streets that attract pedestrians, including Elliott, Darby, O’Connell and Fort streets. Planned work on other streets has been cut from the programme.
The Auckland City Council arts, culture and recreation committee last week approved the changes.
The work is funded through the CBD targeted rate.
