Poll: Queen Street redesign revealed - what are your thoughts?

Ripu Bhatia Reporter from Central Leader

Auckland Council has revealed the final design of its Queen Street makeover.

Three projects to upgrade the city centre street have been rolled into one and will be completed over the next 12 months.

A key change is wider footpaths, that will be shared by people on feet and wheels.

The path closest to shops is for slower moving pedestrians, while the side closest to the street is for bikes, scooters and people moving quickly on foot.

Changes in paving texture, planting, street furniture will separate the two paths.

General parking on Queen Street will be removed, but space has been designated for loading zones along the street.

Between Wellesley and Wakefield Streets there will be two lanes in each direction reserved for buses, motorcycles, delivery and emergency vehicles, cyclists and scooters. Private vehicles will not be allowed here.

What do you think of the planned makeover of Queen Street?

Free Pickup of Unwanted Laptops, Laptop Chargers, and Gadgets - Usable, Old or Broken.

Jed from Mount Roskill

Help us help the indigent students in the Philippines -🇵🇭  - Like and Share our Facebook Page as Well.







Copied from Ron's Original Post



I am from the Philippines and based in Hamilton.



We are sending laptops and gadgets back home as there are a lot of students there who would like to go to school but they cannot because of Covid.



Their only chance now to study is via online learning. if you have any laptops or gadgets that could enable them to go online...everything will be very much appreciated.



If you know anyone who is just disposing their old techs... please do let them now as I have seen people just dumping their techs where in those could have been usable in the hands of a student wanting to learn.



You won't have to worry about pickups. All you have to do is put it in a box , will send you a tracking number and courier will pickup from your place.



Most of the laptops and gadgets collected will go to the Philippines and the others will be sold here to help fund the operating cost of pickups (mainly for courier, shipping and pickups).



If you also have other things that are of value that you would want to donate... we can accept them also. We will sell them and the proceeds will help us to keep operations going.



Kindly message me here or text/call Ron at 02108512849.



Maraming Salamat po! (Thank You!)
