O Mahurangi Penlink funding decision reached

Transport Minister Michael Wood has announced the decision to toll O Mahurangi Penlink to futureproof the vital connection in Auckland’s transport network.

“The Government is upgrading New Zealand’s transport system to make it safer, greener, and more efficient for now and future generations to come,” Michael Wood said.

“O Mahurangi Penlink is more than just a road, it is a vital connection for north Auckland, linking the Whangaparāoa Peninsula with the wider Auckland region.

“The road will not simply support the surrounding community through more lanes for cars, it will provide safer and more sustainable transport choices – becoming a key public transport route while also promoting walking and cycling on a separated shared path.
“This additional route will reduce travel time to North Auckland by about 20 minutes during peak hours.

Auckland Airport’s new shopping outlet centre moves into build phase

Construction has started on Auckland Airport’s new $200 million outlet centre, Mānawa Bay, with the build phase set to provide hundreds of jobs.

Once completed, the centre will have 24,000m2 of retail space, more than 100 stores ranging in size from 50m2 to 1500m2, and 1400 car parks.

Last year, Auckland Airport broke ground on the 150,000m2, or 15ha, greenfield site for the centre in the north-east of the airport precinct, and work on the building foundations was underway.

Auckland Airport chief commercial officer Mark Thomson said the project was moving into the build phase with the appointment of Savory Construction as lead contractor for the building, car park and surrounding landscaping.

Partnership delivers 117 affordable homes in Avondale

A new affordable housing development has been officially opened in the Auckland suburb of Avondale by the Minister of Housing, Hon Dr Megan Woods, today.

The Aroha development marks the completion of 117 apartments, of which 47 are affordable KiwiBuild homes, on Auckland’s Great North Road.

“This development is an example of a Government partnership with iwi and private developers to deliver affordable housing,” said Dr Woods.

“I see every day how the partnerships we make are critical to the delivery of affordable housing. I signed the development agreement for this proposal in December 2020 and it is pleasing to see it completed just two and a half years later.
