28 September 2020: Your feedback – what we heard and what’s happening next in southern Auckland
Between 18 May and 19 June 2020, we asked for feedback across a range of proposed transport projects in southern Auckland.
Thank you to everyone who gave their feedback during this time.
Over the coming months we’ll continue to engage with the community to close the loop on your feedback. We’ll continue to share information as we refine our preferred options and progress towards route protection.
Some priority projects, such as Mill Road, are happening sooner than others and will help unlock growth in southern Auckland.
Mill Road corridor is moving forward
As part of the Government’s New Zealand Upgrade Programme(external link)(external link) investment announcement in January 2020, Mill Road will be delivered by Waka Kotahi NZ Transport Agency and plans for construction are now being finalised.
Over the coming months, site investigations will be carried out to understand the environment in and around the Mill Road corridor. This information along with feedback from the May – June 2020 public engagement(external link)(external link) will help to confirm the preferred route.
Thank you again for submitting your feedback. Ongoing engagement with property owners, communities, stakeholders and partners during this time is key to working together to plan the future transport for southern Auckland.
12 June 2020: More time to have your say on southern Auckland transport plans
Community feedback is open until 19 June 2020 on a range of transport proposals that will transform southern Auckland.
There's now more time to have your say on southern Auckland projects in the Drury-Ōpāheke, Pukehohe-Paerata and Takaanini areas. Due to an overwhelming response we've extended public engagement until Friday 19 June.
Thank you to those who have submitted feedback already on our transport proposals.
If you haven’t yet, we’d love to hear your thoughts.

18 May 2020: Have your say on southern Auckland transport plans
We’ve progressed southern Auckland projects in the Drury-Opāheke, Pukehohe-Paerata and Takaanini areas. Some projects are now funded through the New Zealand Upgrade Programme(external link) and some projects have identified a preferred option, and we’d like your feedback on these.

January 2020 update: Consultation now closed on Drury and Ōpāheke projects
In December 2019 and January 2020, we sought feedback on the draft preferred option for projects within the Drury and Ōpāheke areas. Thank you to those who provided feedback - we are now collating this and will use it to check we haven't missed anything important for these projects which are being progressed through Detailed Business Cases.

July 2019 update
As the Supporting Growth Programme moves into further investigations and route protection processes, there will be an opportunity for further stakeholder, property owner and community 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 South 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.
