Auckland Harbour Bridge pathway gains traction with unveiling of designs

Barring a few public events like the Auckland Marathon, there is little opportunity for the public to cross the Auckland Harbour Bridge via methods that don’t involve cars, motorbikes or trucks. But on Sunday the move to install a cycle and pedestrian pathway on the bridge gained traction when Mayor Len Brown, MP Nikki Kaye and Hopper Developments chief executive Leigh Hopper unveiled the concept designs for the proposed pathway at a function in Auckland’s new Wynyard Quarter.

It’s crunch time in Turua Street as protestors today make a final stand to save three Spanish style Art Deco cottages in Auckland’s St Heliers suburb. Awaiting the arrival of bulldozers, protestors picketed through the night following an announcement by Auckland Mayor Len Brown earlier this week that last ditch negotiations between the council, the developer and local residents, had failed to bring a resolution to save the houses.
