Significant investment will improve public space in Manukau

The Waiohua Iwi and community’s vision of a seamless and thriving green open public space alongside Te Puhinui Stream from the Auckland Botanic Gardens to Hayman Park in the heart of Manukau is one step closer to reality today.  It follows the acquisition of a large parcel of land from Te Whatu Ora by Eke Panuku Development Auckland.

Auckland Council’s urban regeneration agency has purchased a 7.6-hectare section of the national health provider’s Manukau Super Clinic site as part of its Transform Manukau urban regeneration programme.  With a clear focus on encouraging public and private development in this key southern hub, the work Eke Panuku is doing to improve public spaces for current and future communities is a crucial part of this strategy.

The site is the last remaining section of the Puhinui Stream corridor which currently isn’t publicly accessible. Its purchase will enable future wetland development as part of a project, named Te Aka Raataa, to progress and complete a three-kilometre connection along the path of the Puhinui Stream.  Te Aka Raataa is part of Te Whakaoranga o te Puhinui, a wider collaborative regeneration programme which is restoring the health of this natural environment.

Urban regeneration along the Eastern Busway

About the urban regeneration project
In these neighbourhoods, we seek to align and integrate high-quality development with the busway. This is so more people can live and work in areas close to public transport.

The work we will do will support and stimulate the region’s economy, enable sustainable city growth, and be a major opportunity to create amazing places. It will also maximise council’s investment in the busway.

About the Eastern Busway
The Eastern Busway will connect Panmure, Pakūranga, Burswood and Botany through a dedicated busway, with adjoining cycling and walkway facilities. The busway is being delivered by the Eastern Busway Alliance, a partnership between Auckland Transport and four other companies. The Alliance is responsible for designing, consenting, and building the busway. You can find out more about the busway on the Eastern Busway project
