Planning north west Auckland's transport future together

Feedback open from 30 November 2020–1 February 2021

We sought feedback on a number of future transport proposals for the new growth areas in the north west. Several projects were consulted on:

  • Alternative State Highway – a new route between Brigham Creek and State Highway 16
  • Improving transport connections in Whenuapai
  • Improving transport connections in Redhills
  • Improving Kumeū-Huapai
  • Improving transport connections to Riverhead
  • Strategic connections in north west Auckland

Summary of feedback

We received:

  • 650 pieces of feedback
  • 153 comments on the digital interactive platform Social Pinpoint
  • 261 completed surveys

Key feedback themes:

  • Desire for things to happen faster than they are currently planned to
  • Strong support for creating new and improved public transport options
  • Strong support for an alternative route to State Highway 16
  • Positive response to new, safe walking and cycling paths
  • Agreement that key existing routes need improving – including Coatesville-Riverhead Highway, Access Road, Station Road and Brigham Creek Road

How we used your feedback

We’re currently working through the feedback provided. This, along with our technical investigations, will help us make decisions on preferred routes.

The next step will be to submit a Detailed Business Case to Waka Kotahi and Auckland Transport for approval. We expect this to happen in late 2021/early 2022.
