Work is starting shortly to remove 61 properties as part of the AMETI Eastern Busway route. The properties are all owned by Auckland Council and are along the Panmure to Pakuranga stage of AMETI.
The removal of properties on the northern side of Lagoon Drive and Pakuranga Road will finish by early 2019 to enable the main construction phase to start in March or April 2019.
Mayor Phil Goff says, "AMETI will bring high-frequency public transport to east Auckland along with significantly improved facilities for motorists and safer, faster connections for bike riders and walkers. It will unlock housing development opportunities and boosting the local economy."
