Another pedestrian plaza in front of Britomart Station may only be half-ready.
Auckland Business Chamber chief executive Michael Barnett says it would be a bad look for Auckland.
He says it would clearly demonstrate that we're not capable of sticking to deadlines or completing major projects.
A final decision on whether to delay Te Wero bridge will be made in August.
Auckland Transport denies that the Downtown Public Space won't be complete in time.
