New City Carpark Booming
Great to see the new Darby St carpark going so well.
Nothing like sneaking around from Queen St and grabbing a park and going off for a few hours without a care in the world.
Bring on more Shared Spaces so we can encourage more cars into the city and more cheap carpark spaces.
Who cares about pedestrians anyway.
This issue has been raised here several times in the last few weeks with similar damming photographic evidence and I could have put up more.
Auckland Transport was alerted.
Obviously the authorities don’t care or they would have acted – and one sadly can conclude the PR spin about Shared Spaces is BS.
That spin at the time of the Darby St opening said:
“Len Brown says the introduction of shared space is part of the council’s vision to further Auckland’s reputation as one of the world’s most liveable cities and the Darby Street opening celebration will showcase how shared spaces can enhance Auckland.”
Sounds good in theory. Now prove it.
I even saw 2 private cars parked across Elliott St last night outside a nightclub with no sign of their owners. They were taking advantage of the Shared Space construction there and must have moved road cones to get in.
