Thomas Services: Negotiations with various commercial property owners and business owners affected by the project
Over the last several years New Lynn has been undergoing an urban renewal programme. This has included the construction of a new train station and bus interchange to upgrade this important regional transport hub.
The project has included the provision of new public roads, transformation of Totara Ave as a shared-use road and the construction of 2 multi-level buildings for retail, car-parking, and apartment accommodation.
To achieve these works, certain properties needed to be acquired under the provisions of the Public Works Act. In 2011 Thomas was involved in successful negotiations with various commercial property owners as well as business owners affected by the project to acquire their interests in the land.
