$10b Auckland growth transport networks unveiled

The route of a new highway by-pass, rapid transit corridors and major transport upgrades have been revealed in a $10 billion plan to cope with Auckland's long-term growth.

Many of the projects are 10 to 30 years away and are unfunded, but an alliance between Auckland Council and the Government will work on the plans for the north, north-west, south and around Warkworth.

The Supporting Growth Alliance said the plans focussed on the areas forecast to accommodate 130,000 new homes and provide 76,000 new jobs over the next 30 years.

Town centre plan in Southern Auckland set to be finalised

Drury is on track to become Southern Auckland's epicentre - as a 51 hectare town centre plan takes shape - but locals are hoping transport infrastructure will keep up.

Kiwi Property, who own and manage $3.2 billion of New Zealand property including Sylvia Park, progressively acquired 51 hectares of land at Drury in 2017 and 2018 for approximately $50 million.

Over time, the development could see up to 3270 households over 15 hectares of residential land, alongside parklands, retail and offices - which could create over 6,000 jobs in the area.

Plans for a new town square in Takapuna green lit

Auckland Council’s Environment and Community Committee approved Panuku’s proposal to reclassify land in central Takapuna for new open public space at a meeting on Wednesday 10 July.

The proposal put forward by Panuku outlined recommendations for a public space of approximately 3,200m² across 40 Anzac Street and 34-38 Hurstmere Road, a location that follows the preferred outcome of a public consultation in July 2018 to connect Lake and Hurstmere roads.

The decision confirms the footprint of the future public space and allows for detailed design work to move ahead.

The footprint, situated over a location favoured by the community, offers visual and physical connections to adjoining spaces such as Potters Park and Hurstmere Green, a connection of laneways, abundant sunlight, places to sit and relax and opportunities for markets and community events.
