Between 30 November 2020 and 1 February 2021, we asked for feedback across a range of proposed transport projects in North West Auckland.

Following the public consultation period closing on 1 February 2021, we continued to engage with landowners and the community to answer questions and close the loop on their feedback. We’ll continue to share information as we refine our preferred routes and progress towards route protection.

What’s next?

The next step is to submit a Detailed Business Case (DBC) to Auckland Transport and Waka Kotahi NZ Transport Agency for approval, we expect this to be late 2021 to early 2022.

Thank you again for submitting your feedback. Ongoing engagement with landowners and the community, stakeholders and partners is key to planning the North West’s transport future together.

Mill Road corridor

As part of the Government’s New Zealand Upgrade Programme(external link) investment announcement in January 2020, Mill Road will be delivered by Waka Kotahi NZ Transport Agency. 

Since then, significant planning and design work has been carried out, along with engagement with landowners and the community and technical investigations of the land needed in the future. There is still a lot of work to do to confirm the preferred route.

Community feedback has helped get us to where we are now. Feedback from the May – June 2020 public engagement(external link) and ongoing stakeholder engagement will help progress towards confirming the preferred route.

2018 Consultation

From August to October 2018, we held a new round of consultation with feedback surveys and a series of open days for each of the Warkworth, north, North West and southern growth areas. The purpose was to seek feedback on the project options being investigated for each of the items originally identified in the 2016 Preferred Transport Network Plans. It also provided an update on what’s happened since 2016, Auckland Council(external link)’s Structure Planning process, and what the next steps are in our programme.

When the Supporting Growth programme began in 2015, Manawhenua, local boards, the public and a wide range of stakeholders were involved and consulted in the development of the preferred network for each area. A summary of the results of this consultation is available here(external link). Feedback gained in this period helped inform the Preferred Transport Network Plans [PDF, 8 MB] published in late 2016.
