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.

We’ve prepared a summary of the feedback we received - you can find 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 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 NZ Upgrade Programme(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, ecological and ground 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) will help to confirm the preferred route.
