Auckland is now at Alert Level 3.

Although many of us are feeling frustrations around going into another lockdown, please remember to be kind and to stay home if at all possible so contact tracing can work effectively and swiftly - as we all want our freedoms back at the end of these seven days. Staying home if you’re sick is still the best thing you can do to stop any future spread of COVID-19.

Once again, the Downtown Programme will continue working through Alert Level 3 under strict Covid-19 health and safety protocols based on Ministry of Health Guidance and industry best practice. Safety remains our key priority.

To keep you safe as you walk, cycle or scooter through the Downtown area, we will ensure footpaths and the cycle lane are as wide as possible at all times. As you approach pedestrian crossing points, please be mindful of people next to you and employ the two meter social distancing protocol.
We’re grateful for the opportunity to continue construction under Alert Level 3.  

Many of us on the Downtown Programme are working from home but are still available should you wish to speak with us - contact information is at the bottom of this update.

Stay safe, stay inside and stay well.

Site changes for this week

Stop-go now in place 24/7 on Quay Street 

Commerce Street to Queens Wharf

Monday 01 to Sunday 07 March (unless Alert Level 3 extends)

Due to low traffic volumes on Quay Street during Alert Level 3, we are permitted to close the westbound lane between Commerce Street and Queen's Wharf for this week. There are some remedial concrete panel works required that would otherwise need to be done under night shift due to the traffic management required.

This section of Quay Street will operate under Stop-go traffic management until works are complete, or until 06.00am Sunday 06 March. 

Waiheke ferries return to Pier 2

Saturday 06 March 

With all fender pile works wrapping up this week the Waiheke ferries will be returning to Pier 2 this Saturday, 06 March.

Thank you to all Waiheke passengers for your patience and cooperation during these works.
Covid-19 update from Auckland Transport
The public has been advised that you must maintain physical distancing of 2 metres outside your home. You must maintain 1 metre physical distancing while using public transport, this includes transiting through the bus/train station. 

You must now wear face coverings when on public transport to help reduce the spread of the virus.

Public transport will continue to operate with strict health and safety requirements in place. You should maintain physical distancing and only travel if necessary.

Ministry of Health contact tracing QR codes are displayed on public transport. To help things go smoothly, please install the Ministry of Health’s NZ COVID Tracer app before you take public transport. Remember to scan the code during your trip and enable Bluetooth tracing if your phone supports it.

Fares will continue to be charged over this 3-day Alert Level 3 period, cash is not being accepted on public transport. You must tag on/off with your AT HOP card and we strongly recommend that you register your AT HOP card to help with contact tracing should it be required.

This will allow us to monitor passenger numbers and make fast adjustments to services if required due to changes in demand. AT are working to make those changes as quickly as possible.
