We have an exciting and transformational project in the Northwest of Tamaki Makaurau that we would like to let you know about.
As part of the growth of the wider rapid transit network, Waka Kotahi NZ Transport Agency is investigating the rapid transit options to provide people with a fast, frequent and reliable way to get around the northwest of Auckland - from Brigham Creek to the city centre, alongside State Highway 16 (SH16).
This mahi is being led by Waka Kotahi in partnership with Te Kawerau a Maki, Ngati Whatua Orakei and other iwi partners.
A better-connected Auckland
The northwest of Auckland is growing and there’s an increasing need to provide better public transport options for everyone who lives in and moves around the area.
Rapid transit along the Northwestern Motorway, SH16, will transform the way people move around the region, create connections to the growing rapid transit network, reduce our reliance on private vehicles, reduce emissions and create a more sustainable future for us all.
Rapid transit is fast, frequent and reliable public transport that carries large numbers of people, on dedicated corridors separated from other traffic. This means it is unaffected by general traffic congestion – like the Northern Busway on the Northern Motorway (SH1). Rapid transit can come in a variety of modes including rail, bus and ferry.
