Update - December 2018

This year we asked for feedback on ideas and options for the future transport network in Auckland's northwestern 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. Information about the options for the North West that we consulted on in 2018 can be viewed on the Publications(external link) page. 

We have valued your involvement and thank you for providing your thoughts. The general themes that emerged were:

  • 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.

If you would like more detail, a summary of feedback is available here [PDF, 495 KB]

What happens next?

We’re using this feedback alongside other data to help shape a draft transport network. This will go to the boards of Auckland Transport and NZ Transport Agency for approval in mid 2019. Have a look at this Next Steps timeline  [PDF, 54 KB]for more information.
