Auckland Central and Green Party MP Chlöe Swarbrick has launched a petition to pedestrianise Queen Street.

 

This comes ten years after the council signed off on the Auckland City Centre Master Plan with intentions to pedestrianise that has consistently faced barriers. 

Although this could see benefits in returning foot traffic to queen street, some have commented on fears about lost sales from vehicle drivers and safety. 

Liam spoke to Swarbrick, asking about why she thinks Tāmaki Makaurau could benefit from a carless Queen Street.

He also had a chat with Greg Harford from Retail NZ about some of the issues they think could arise without cars.
