Upgrades by Hawkins and Auckland Transport to a section of Gaunt Street between Halsey and Daldy Streets are now complete.

Gaunt Street opened to vehicles and pedestrians last week, with the latest work transforming the area into a pedestrian and cycle-friendly streetscape with high quality street furniture, paving and lush planting.

The completion of the work marks another milestone for Wynyard Quarter and opens up the area for better pedestrian and traffic flow to support the greater number of people expected into the area in the future. 

Glen Maria Project Manager for Hawkins (now Downer), says: “It’s been a challenging project, with deep services, tidal flows, and reclaimed land, but the finished streets look great.  

“We’re proud to be a part of the regeneration works in Wynyard Quarter and are looking forward to the next phases.” 

Auckland Transport acknowledged the stakeholders involved in the project, saying their support and willingness was key in achieving this milestone.
