Closed for feedback: Planning north west Auckland's transport future together

Feedback open from 30 November 2020–1 February 2021

We sought feedback on a number of future transport proposals for the new growth areas in the north west. Several projects were consulted on:

  • Alternative State Highway – a new route between Brigham Creek and State Highway 16
  • Improving transport connections in Whenuapai
  • Improving transport connections in Redhills
  • Improving Kumeū-Huapai
  • Improving transport connections to Riverhead
  • Strategic connections in north west Auckland
  • How we used your feedback

     We’re currently working through the feedback provided. This, along with our technical investigations, will help us make decisions on preferred routes. 

    The next step will be to submit a Detailed Business Case to Waka Kotahi and Auckland Transport for approval. We expect this to happen in late 2021/early 2022.

Closed for feedback: Ideas and options for the future transport network in north west growth areas

Feedback open in 2018

During 2018, we asked for feedback on ideas and options for the future transport network in Auckland's north west growth areas. We talked to the community, Manawhenua, transport stakeholders and local boards. We held public open days, meetings and hui, and received both written and verbal feedback.

  • Summary of feedback
    • There was strong support for provision of safe and separated walking and cycling routes both for recreation and to provide access to key local destinations
    • People thought that improvements should be made to the existing ferry services and terminals as a priority over establishing new ferry terminals
    • Overall, there was strong support for future investment in a strategic public transport network for the north west. People had a range of views on whether the new Rapid Transit Network (RTN) should be bus, light rail or passenger rail
    • People supported new key connections, including between SH16 and SH18 and an alternative corridor to SH16
    • Safety, speed, congestion and cycling access are important to people when it comes to upgrading existing roads in the north west.
