New airport taxiway
By SCOTT MORGAN
Fewer delays: Associate Minister of Tourism Chris
Tremain, left, cutting the cake with Auckland Airport chief
executive Adrian Littlewood.
Congestion on the run-
way at Auckland Airport
is set to reduce now a
new taxiway has been
Taxiway Lima doubles
access to the western
side of the terminal
building and will eventu-
ally link up to the air-
port s new northern run-
Airport chief executive
Adrian Littlewood says it
will be easier to
around, particularly dur-
When there s fog it
slows down the move-
ment. This provides an
alternative path to the
terminal, he says.
It also provides access
to the increasingly busy
part of the terminal
that accepts Airbus
Mr Littlewood says the
new taxiway will benefit
both passengers and air-
There will be fewer
delays for passengers
waiting at the gate. For
airlines they ll be able to
minimise their time on
The more flexibility
we can provide them the
more likely they are to
The estimated date for
completion of the north-
ern runway is 2022 but
that depends on econ-
omic conditions, Mr Litt-
demand. We re very
much aware of delivering
it at the right time -- not
too early, not too late.
For the third consecutive
month the average Auck-
land house price showed
little movement, with
June s average price
That s an increase of
just over $5000 on the
average price during
This is less than a 1
per cent increase on
May s average price, and
since March the average
price has risen by only
$4017, Barfoot &
director Peter Thompson
While the average
sales price points to
relative stability, the
median selling price has
increase, which at
$590,000 for June is
$20,000 higher than in
May and is $10,000
higher than in March.
While house values
are moving in a tight
band at present, the
number of properties on
the market has shrunk
to an all-time low.
Demand for proper-
ties is unprecedented
and competition is
intense with homes sell-
ing within a tighter time
frame than at any time
in the last decade.
However, this compe-
tition for properties has
so far not led to prices
breaking through the
price ceiling established
In June we listed only
1189 properties, while
our sales for the month
numbered 1059, Mr
This is the closest we
have come to selling the
same number of proper-
ties as we have listed in
a month in the past 11
At the end of June we
had only 2873 properties
on our books, the first
time our end of month
listings have dipped
below 3000 properties in
the past 11 years, he
Listings in June were
5.3 per cent lower than
the number of listings in
May, and 29.5 per cent
lower than in June last
During June, Barfoot
& Thompson sold 380
homes for less than
$500,000, and a further
373 for between
$500,000 and $750,000.
A total of 144 homes
sold for in excess of $1
million, the same num-
ber as in May.
Property sales at 1059
for June was the fourth
consecutive month that
sales were in excess of
1000 for the month.
The last time sales
were this consistently
high was nine years ago
in the first half of 2004.
