Latest news – December 2019

Since the release of the Indicative Strategic Transport Network for South Auckland in July 2019, we have completed further technical work to progress the planning for projects within the Drury and Opāheke areas. This means that some projects are now at a point where a draft preferred option has been identified, and we would like your feedback on these.

Check out our ‘Have your say/South’(external link) page for more information and an online feedback form.

Transport Network for South Auckland

The network in the South provides transport options for travelling within the local area and to places further afield such as the Auckland CBD, the airport and inter-regionally to the upper North Island.

This transport network integrates with Auckland Council’s development of a structure plans that identify the mix and location of housing, employment, retail, commercial and communities in South Auckland.
