Ideas and options for the future transport network in Whenuapai, Redhills, Kumeū-Huapai and Riverhead

Feedback open during 2018

During 2018, we asked for feedback on ideas and options for the future transport network in Auckland's north west growth areas. 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.

Summary of feedback

  • There was strong support for provision of safe and separated walking and cycling routes both for recreation and to provide access to key local destinations
  • People thought that improvements should be made to the existing ferry services and terminals as a priority over establishing new ferry terminals
  • Overall, there was strong support for future investment in a strategic public transport network for the north west. People had a range of views on whether the new Rapid Transit Network (RTN) should be bus, light rail or passenger rail
  • People supported new key connections, including between SH16 and SH18 and an alternative corridor to SH16
  • Safety, speed, congestion and cycling access are important to people when it comes to upgrading existing roads in the north west.

How we used your feedback

Feedback was used alongside safety, environmental, traffic and technical data to help shape an indicative strategic transport network for North West Auckland’s growth areas, which was released in 2019.
