North Auckland is growing fast. By 2050 it’s expected there will be at least 41,000 new homes, 22,000 new jobs and 110,000 new residents. Most of this future growth will occur in Silverdale, Dairy Flat, Wainui and Ōrewa.
To support future urban growth, a well-designed integrated transport network for North Auckland is needed. We’re proposing long-term transport projects to help everyone move around safely, easily and sustainably, whether they’re walking, cycling, using public transport or driving.
We’re planning now because it’s important to protect the land needed to build new transport projects over the next 20 to 30 years as development occurs. It is anticipated they will be considered for funding in line with the long-term timeframes for the rezoning and release of land by Auckland Council over the next 10-30 years.
To guide our planning, Auckland Transport and Waka Kotahi NZ Transport Agency outlined a long-term strategic transport network in 2019. It was developed with community consultation and contains options for local and longer distance trips to create a low-carbon transport system for North Auckland. Since then, the project team has investigated a number of preferred options for corridors within the network.
