Project update

We would like to extend our huge thanks to the wider Te Atatū South community for their patience and cooperation during the construction phase of the Te Atatū T2 lanes and other improvements.

We are pleased to report that we have completed all major work along Te Atatū South. This work is part of the Northwestern Bus Improvements project aimed at providing a more efficient bus network to service the rapidly growing population of Northwest Auckland.

We still have some minor night work pending, to paint long-life road marking, but we’re waiting for good weather conditions and traffic management approval.
