The Government is pushing ahead with Light Rail on Dominion Road. IF this project goes ahead it will have a significant impact on local communities. Our C&R Maungawhau team will advocate for:

  • Strong, independent local advocates on the Establishment Unit to hold the government and transport agencies to account
  • A service that serves locals, not a racetrack to the airport
  • A proposal for construction and operation that is financially realistic
  • The retention of kerbside parking, stopping, and right turns at certain times of the day on Dominion Road
  • The replacement of any parking that is removed
  • An effective and properly funded support program for businesses that are adversely effected during the multi-year construction period
