Our online conversation with Deputy Mayor Bill Cashmore on planning southern Auckland’s transport future together
Last week we hosted our first online community conversation, facilitated by Auckland’s Deputy Mayor Bill Cashmore. We received 126 questions before and during the event and lots of messages about what you liked, suggestions on how to do things better, and requests for more engagement. We also heard your frustrations about not having your questions answered during the live session.
We’ve taken this feedback onboard and will host another three on-line sessions which will have a focus on answering questions. Please complete this brief survey(external link) by Monday 22 June so we can make sure we cover the right topics and schedule the sessions for a time that suits most people.
The second set of questions and answers can also be found here [PDF, 240 KB].

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.

The Supporting Growth Programme
The Supporting Growth Programme is a collaboration between Auckland Transport and the Waka Kotahi 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:
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).
