Access for Everyone (A4E) is a new idea to create more space in the city centre.
A4E introduces a new traffic circulation system where private vehicles would access city centre zones from the city's edge. It organises the city centre into nine low-traffic neighbourhoods, including a pedestrian-priority zone in the Waihorotiu Queen Street Valley.
A4E is consistent with wider transformative change for the city centre. It makes space for current and proposed public transport investment, addressing the rapidly increasing numbers of workers, residents and visitors in central Auckland and making streets more inclusive. It prioritises access to the city centre, not through it.
A4E is a high-level concept and would require further development and testing prior to full implementation.
