Flood of feed­back on $18m cup plan

Central Leader - - Letters -

More than 200 peo­ple have had a say on plans to re­vamp San­dring­ham Rd ahead of the Rugby World Cup.

The Auck­land City Coun­cil has re­ceived 215 feed­back forms, let­ters and emails on the pro­posal.

The $18 mil­lion plan would see San­dring­ham Rd re­aligned to make way for a wider Kings­land rail­way sta­tion plat­form.

New bus lanes would be added and the in­ter­sec­tion with Wal­ters Rd re­designed.

A $3m link lane be­tween Wal­ters Rd and San­dring­ham Rd has also been pro­posed, which would mean re­mov­ing ex­ist­ing houses.

Sub­mis­sions on the plan are now closed, and the feed­back will be re­ported to the coun­cil’s trans­port com­mit­tee on De­cem­ber 4.
