Auckland Light Rail Project Auckland Light Rail Project

Project zone: central
Status: on hold

Rapid transit is a key transport priority for Auckland - a critical investment to develop a modern, connected, high-capacity transport system in New Zealand’s largest city, supporting jobs, growth and housing.

Auckland Light Rail Ltd has been investigating the delivery of a rapid transit project on the City Centre to Mangere corridor. In early 2024, the Government instructed work on the project to stop immediately and for Auckland Light Rail Ltd to be disestablished.

AT continues to work on plans for Auckland’s wider rapid transit network as the region grows, including the development of other rapid transit corridors. See the Auckland Rapid Transit Pathway for more information.
