If all goes well, commuters and those wanting to shop in Mt Albert may soon be able to access Mt Albert Railway Station from the town centre via a pedestrian bridge, says City Vision Deputy Chair of the Albert Eden Board Glenda Fryer.
With an eye to pedestrian safety the pedestrian bridge, a new train station entrance, realigned roads and upgrades to the village square and streetscape are among the initiatives that are planned as part of the $3.4 million project. With so many students going to MAGS, Marist and Unitec by train or bicycle Mt Albert needs to be more pedestrian and cycle friendly.
“The pedestrian bridge and ‘village square’ is what residents and businesses have long waited for and will be part of the restyling of the village. Urban designer Garth Falconer and his design team have some really exciting designs for Mt Albert which will be instituted over the next 10 years.
Visit the Shape Auckland website from early July to have your say on the designs.
