Te Tupu Ngātahi (the Supporting Growth Alliance) is a collaboration between the NZ Transport Agency(external link) and Auckland Transport(external link) to carry out the planning phase of the Supporting Growth Programme (formerly known as the Transport for Urban Growth Programme).
The Alliance is undertaking the detailed investigations needed for business cases to confirm the preferred transport networks. Once confirmed, the Alliance will then carry out the route protection process to protect the land for these networks over the coming years.
Te Tupu Ngātahi means ‘to grow together as one’. The Alliance comprises Auckland Transport and NZ Transport Agency as the owner participants, consultants AECOM and Beca, and legal providers Bell Gully and Buddle Findlay.
The project is being undertaken in collaboration with Auckland Council(external link), Manawhenua and KiwiRail(external link). The Alliance is also engaging with key stakeholders such as businesses and communities at different stages over the coming years.
