Enhancing community connectivity

Enhancing community connectivity - Manukau

Life will be easier for people moving around Manukau. Upgraded public transport will improve connections to surrounding communities, and walking and cycling options will be better.

Over time, Manukau will be transformed from a car-based centre to a place where people have plenty of choice about how they travel.

Key projects include:

  • Upgrading Great South Road as an important north–south urban avenue which gives priority to buses, as well as cars.
  • Exploring a mass transit bus route from the airport to Botany, via central Manukau
  • Creating a cycle network.
  • Making it easy, safe and attractive to walk around Manukau.
