An open letter to:
The Mayor and Chief Executive of Auckland Council
1. Albert Eden Local Board inherited legacy funding for a long delayed and much needed upgrade of the Mount Albert Town Centre
2. The costs of securing the ground lease of the carpark for a plaza and works to provide alternative carparking are greater than anticipated, leaving little to complete the upgrade,
3. Auckland Transport is responsible for upgrading Mount Albert Station,
4. Officials, without reference to the Local Board, have decided to reallocate $1.23 million of the Town Centre budget to complete the station.
We, the undersigned:
request your urgent attention to securing the budget to compete the station works, including the overbridge, from Auckland Transport.
