Closed for feedback: Ideas and options for the future transport network in Warkworth
During 2018, we asked for feedback on ideas and options for the future transport network in Dairy Flat, Silverdale and Wainui. 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.
An overall recognition that transport planning is needed now in advance of future urban growth
High value place on having access to a range of travel choice to get to places in Warkworth as well as travel outside of the area, such as the Auckland CBD
Strong support for bus services in Warkworth for local trips and for commuters, mostly travelling to North and Central Auckland
Services must be reliable, easily accessible to people in the Warkworth area and wider settlements (such as Algies Bay, Matakana and Sandspit) via all modes including walking and cycling
Improvements are required for some existing roads in Warkworth so they can cater for future growth. New and upgraded arterial connections should be safe, provide travel choice and reduce traffic through existing urban areas
There is a significant opportunity for walking and cycling to be a primary way people to get to where they need to go in Warkworth. However, consideration should be given to the hilly topography and providing safe and separated facilities. There was support for a strategic walking and cycling route along the Mahurangi River
There was a range of views about how to urbanise the existing SH1 through the town centre in the future, and strong interest in how it could link into other major roads and the Ara-Tūhono Pūhoi to Warkworth motorway.
