There is growing concern among Warkworth Businesses about the affect of the closure of access to Elizabeth Street for the Hill Street intersection. Many are advising they have suffered significant loss of business in the few days that the access has been closed. As we discussed this morning at least one business owner is threatening to remove the barrier. We have not encouraged this action but note it to stress the level of concern felt by some businesses. 

I’m am conveying this concern to you on behalf of the One Warkworth Business Association. The solution sought by those affected members is an end to the trial closure and the removal of the barrier.

We have raised this concern with Mark Mitchell as our MP and with Greg Sayers as our Councillor.

Can you please advocate on behalf of our affected members to Auckland Transport and advise any proposed steps Auckland Transport may take to address these concerns.

Thank you
