Mount Albert Update
Reset has been involved in the exciting streetscape project in Mount Albert. The town centre upgrade is a key project for the Albert-Eden Local Board. The aim is to create high-quality, attractive and safe streetscapes, which will provide a significant increase in pedestrian amenity for the community to enjoy, along with more opportunity for local businesses, including street-based trading.
The proposed improvements include enhanced pedestrian connections to the recently upgraded train station, via an overbridge, to encourage the use of public transport. Other key design features of the first stage include: widened footpaths; improved safety on Carrington Rd; retention of public car parks retained; additional cycling infrastructure; and new street trees, paving and street furniture. The first stage of construction is expected to be completed this time next year.
