How Auckland Will Look By 2040
Those who put together the draft Auckland Plan have also given us a visual look of the changes they envisage for Auckland’s CBD area.
Here is how they see Auckland change – and how it should look by 2040.
This is the revamped Victoria St looking towards Queen St
This would be Queen St if it were shut off permanently or at set times such as for weekend markets
This is Hobson St with its present one way system onto Spaghetti Junction
Here is Hobson after it becomes two-way and friendlier to pedestrians
Here’s the dreadful motorway ramp in Lower Hobson St above Tepid Baths
And with it gone
Here’s the Britomart Transport Centre and QE Square
And it will become like this
Here’s Quay St in 2040
Here’s the Nelson St off ramp today
Here’s how it would look by 2040
Here’s Fanshawe St today
Here’s Fanshawe St with modern light rail instead of trams and a more friendly pedestrian feel in 2040
This is bare concrete-dominated Upper Queen St Newton off Queen St today above the motorway
This is how it would change
Here is Federal St today
And how it will look to enhance the work already done with St Pat’s Square
And Quay Park around the Strand railway station
It would look like this
Worth the money and effort? Enough change to make it a liveable city?
