Highwic is open as normal in Alert Level 1.
At Alert Level 1, there is still a risk of COVID-19 returning to the community. We encourage you to continue tracking where you’ve been and who you’ve seen to help with contact tracing, if required.
COVID-19 is contained at Alert Level 1, but it’s still worthwhile to keep a safe distance from people you don’t know while out and about. This will help to minimise the spread of COVID-19 if community transmission returns.
The Government has announced plans to get Auckland's light rail project back on track.
Transport Minister Michael Wood has revealed plans to set up a new working group to create a business case for the project.
It will have six months to provide the Government with information on a preferred route, along with costs and funding options for the rapid transit system from Auckland's CBD to the Auckland International Airport.
The working group will comprise representatives from the Ministry of Transport, Waka Kotahi NZ Transport Agency, Auckland Council, Auckland Transport and Maori, Wood said.
