Buses take to the road on Northern Busway

Northshore commuters now have access to congestion free travel to and from the city, as far north as Albany, thanks to the completion of the latest Northern Busway extension which was opened today by the Minister of Transport, Michael Wood.

The four year project has delivered an additional five kilometres of separated, two-way lanes for buses, adjacent to the Northern Motorway (SH1) and a $23 million upgrade of Constellation Station.

“The Government is committed to delivering public transport that is convenient, reliable and cost-effective. Thanks to the extension, commuters will now experience quicker, improved bus journeys during peak travel times,” said Michael Wood.

Thousands of homes proposed for Auckland's Formosa Golf Club

Thousands of homes and apartments are proposed for coastal land in south-east Auckland, with much of the development on the privately owned Formosa Golf Club.

A plan change is being sought by a partnership including private and iwi interests and the Super Fund, with construction expected over 15-20 years if planning approval is given.

The area is a 45-minute drive from downtown Auckland, with its main public transport connection the nearby Pine Harbour ferry service.
