Franklin Road, an iconic Auckland Road reknown for its Christmas lights, is undergoing a major facelift. The Assocation lobbied for this to become a priority for AT and the project is due for completion in 2019.
The upgrade includes introducing cycle lanes, new footpaths, protection of tree roots, upgrading of services, road resurfacing, new lighting and modifying (with a reduction on) parking.
A Community Liaison Group has been formed to engage key stakeholders in the development and delivery of the Project. Details of the Terms of Reference for this group can be found on the AT website.
Four members of the group represent residents of Franklin Road and nearby streets – one nominated by the Freemans Bay Residents Association and three from residents. Community representatives on the CLG are expected to be the link between the Project Team and the community and facilitate engagement with the community on any issues regarding the project.
