Businesses affected by construction of the City Rail Link are disappointed and angry after a meeting with Auckland mayor Phil Goff​, Stuff reports. As the Government pushes ahead with the upgrade of the City Rail Link, businesses in the Albert St area have spent more than a year living with construction noise, dust, sewer smells and shabby passageways to their stores. Goff​ and City Rail Link chief executive Sean Sweeney​ expressed support for a targeted hardship package for businesses affected by the construction, but offered nothing concrete, according to one of the business owners.
