The Campaign for Better Transport is campaigning for trams to be considered as part of the new $2bn redevelopment of the old Tank Farm area of Aucklands Waterfront.
Working with the Museum of Transport and Technology, who have a number of working heritage trams working at their popular Western Springs site, we presented to Auckland City Council, Auckland Regional Council and met with officials from the Sea+City project team and also Booz Allen, who are undertaking a review of the Te Wero bridge.
Prior to these meetings we also met with Heart Of The City representatives to gain an understanding of their vision for the waterfront.

One thought on “Waterfront Tram Campaign”
This HAS to happen. This must be the most progressive idea I have seen to date, much kudos to everyone who is involved with it and those who suggested the concept. Trams are a tried and tested means of efficient people-moving. You only have to look at cities like Melbourne and Sydney. There is hardly a place you can’t get to there by either tram, rail, bus or a combination of. If this project is successful in getting off the ground, it may provide the impetus to extend operation to more areas of Auckland. Way to go!
