Work to transform Federal Street (between Mayoral Drive and Wellesley Street) into a safer space for pedestrians, will begin in March, Auckland Council announces. The Federal Street transformation is part of a wider programme creating a network of inviting, people-friendly laneways in the CBD. Stage 2 of the upgrade will turn a section of Federal Street into a high-quality shared space for the many people who walk or cycle through it, work in the area, or call Federal Street home.
