16 October 2008 - Plans for a new Clark Street fly-over are being discussed at a community open evening in New Lynn on Thursday, October 23.

Waitakere City Council is undertaking a comprehensive town centre redevelopment programme in New Lynn. This work includes an upgrade to the local roading network to complement significant changes to rail infrastructure through central New Lynn.

Part of the programme of works includes an extension to Clark Street in the form of a raised fly-over that directly links traffic from Clark Street to Great North Road, crossing over the New Lynn rail trench. Construction of the one-kilometre rail trench, which will stretch from Titirangi Road to Portage Road and separate road and rail, is expected to start next month.

The open evening runs from 6.30pm to 8.30pm at the New Lynn Community Centre on Totara Ave. Project managers will be on hand to answer questions and provide information on the fly-over and other New Lynn town centre developments.

Earlier this month the council adopted the New Lynn Urban Regeneration Framework and Concept Plan, which outlines the council's vision to revitalise the town centre and cater for significant population growth in the next 50 years.

Copies of the framework are available on the council's website, from the civic centre, by calling the council's 24-hour call centre and from the New Lynn Library. The New Lynn Library also contains displays and information on planned town centre developments, including the rail trench and bus and rail transport interchange.
