Hurstmere Road is being upgraded by Auckland Council to create an open, vibrant beachside retail destination focused on people. With a healthy ecology, reduction in vehicle dominance and creative cultural expression, it will be a celebration of Takapuna’s unique character.
The final design for the street upgrade has been informed by detailed feedback from both businesses and residents and is expected to deliver:
- A greater focus on people
- Less vehicle dominance
- Reduced speed limit
- More space for outdoor dining and events
- Increased accessibility
- A cleaner, sustainable stormwater treatment system
Construction is expected to begin on Hurstmere Road by late 2019 and will continue around the operations of local business with Auckland Council indicating a strong focus on minimising disruption throughout the process.
The project team for the Hurstmere Road upgrade will continue to provide the local community with updates on key milestones as they develop.
