Your feedback – what we heard and what’s happening next in south Auckland

Between 18 May and 19 June 2020, we asked for feedback across a range of proposed transport projects in south Auckland.

Thank you to everyone who gave their feedback during this time.

We’ve prepared a summary of the feedback we received - you can read it by clicking here [PDF, 342 KB].

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 new train stations, are happening sooner than others and will help unlock growth in south Auckland.

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.

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.
