Facelift forges ahead in Auckland's Avondale

The planned upgrade to Auckland's Avondale is set to start with installation of a new concrete footpath, new bike racks and improved street lighting.

Auckland Transport will this week start building the first half of the footpath upgrade, expected to be finished by mid-March.

The $720,000 work comprises removing and replacing the slippery pavers with a safer, concrete surface, as well as upgrading the bike parking.

Auckland Transport and the Whau Local Board are co-funding the upgrade which was delayed in 2019 due to the Covid-19 emergency budget.

Whau Local Board chair Kay Thomas said the board was really pleased the slippery pavers would be gone.

"There have been far too many injuries and near-misses in the town centre," Thomas said.

"As soon as there’s any water on the pavers they become a hazard, so by removing and replacing them with a concrete surface we’ll have a better town centre for everyone."

Avondale will be revitalised over the next 15 years in a project led by
Auckland Council's urban regeneration agency, Panuku Development Auckland.

An enhanced town square and a purpose built community facility are planned.

Panuku is designing "quality housing options at varying price-points" and improved walking connections from the rail station to the town centre.

What do you think of the plans to revitalise Avondale?

Which other Auckland suburbs do you believe would benefit from a makeover?

Hi there,
Canterbury has been named the fifth most welcoming region in the world in the Booking.com Traveller Review Awards, while Oamaru, Hokitika and Invercargill have been named the most welcoming towns in NZ. They were followed by Cambridge, Picton, Lake Tekapo, Kerikeri, Palmerston North, Paihia and Twizel.
We'd be really keen to hear your thoughts on this based on your own travels around New Zealand. Do you think Canterbury is NZ's most welcoming region? And are these our most welcoming towns?
Where in NZ have you been made to feel particularly welcome on your travels?
As usual, please put 'NFP' in your comment if you don't want it to be included in an article. Cheers.
