We’ve progressed southern Auckland projects in the Drury-Opāheke, Pukehohe-Paerata and Takaanini areas. Some projects are now funded through the NZ Upgrade Programme(external link) and some projects have identified a preferred option, and we’d like your feedback on these.  

Check out our ‘Have your say’ page for more information. 


The Supporting Growth Programme

The Supporting Growth Programme is a collaboration between Auckland Transport and the NZ Transport Agency to plan transport investment in Auckland’s future urban zoned areas over the next 10 to 30 years.

Auckland in 2050 will look quite different to the Auckland we know today. The population is expected to grow by up to one million people.

Most of this growth will go into existing urban areas, however around a third will go into future urban zoned areas (greenfields) identified in the Auckland Unitary Plan. These mostly rural areas will be rezoned over the next few decades and are located within:

  • Warkworth
  • Wainui, Silverdale and Dairy Flat in the North
  • Kumeū, Huapai Redhills, Whenuapai and Riverhead in the North West
  • Takaanini, Opāheke, Drury, Paerata and Pukekohe in the South

In July 2019, Auckland Transport and the NZ Transport Agency confirmed an Indicative Strategic Transport Network – a shared vision for the future transport investments needed to support new neighbourhoods in the future urban zoned areas.

For more information, see the Supporting Growth Programme brochure(external link) outlining the network. Our media release is available  here(external link).
