A group of Queen Street landlords and businesses has failed in their bid for an interim injuction, to stop further temporary work to make Auckland's main commercial street more pedestrian-friendly. The Save Queen Street Society was in the High Court at Auckland yesterday, trying to prevent the some of the Auckland Council's planned improvements to lower Queen Street.  Viv Beck is the chief executive of Heart of the City which represents 10-thousand businesses - part of the Save Queen Street Society.
