“We’re opening up Queen Street to people!”

To people without cars. This could make Auckland’s Queens Street a more attractive destination. Perhaps it is targeting tourists more than suburban Aucklanders.

I have no idea what downtown Auckland is like these days, I have avoided going there since getting charged over thirty dollars for a few hours parking over a decade ago.

Maybe it will revive and thrive as a pedestrian mall, as long as there are plenty of bike stands or cruise ships.
