Draft Annual Plan Submissions are now open, and you should have received a submission form in your letterbox. You can also make a submission online at the Auckland Council Site.
The Central Rail Loop plan is also open for submissions. There is video information available on the Auckland Transport website in which Mayor Len Brown suggests that for the Western line our trip to town would be halved. That would be a 20 minute trip to Britomart from Sunnyvale! I think I could beat my inner city friends in to town with that kind of time. There is also interesting commentary available on Auckland Transport Blog.
A 20 minute trip to town on the train would surely be transformative for the whistle stop suburbs along our Western train lines like Sunnyvale, and Glen Eden and increase the desirability of our Western suburbs as a place to live . As the North Shore now has a major corporate hub on their shores, the best opportunity for the Western residents to have access to corporate jobs is with modern rapid transit to the city.
Submissions can be made between now and March 19 – including online submissions. Have your say.
