Thank you for visiting us at our recent community information days and providing your feedback on the detailed design of the Eastern Busway between Pakuranga Town Centre and Ti Rakau Drive Bridge.
A summary of the community information days held in July and August will be available soon.
Pakuranga to Botany update
A Notice of Requirement for a new designation around Pakuranga Town Centre has recently been lodged with Auckland Council. It encompasses works on Ti Rakau Drive, Pakuranga Road, Reeves Road, Cortina Place, and the South-Eastern Highway (SEART).
The accompanying resource consent applications and public submission process will be available soon.
Section 23 notices
Notice has been given that Auckland Council, under the provisions of section 23 of the Public Works Act 1981, proposes to take the required land for roading purposes, and a leasehold estate over land for temporary occupation for road construction works in connection with the Eastern Busway roading project for the following properties:

The Eastern Busway will connect Botany, Pakuranga, and neighbouring suburbs to the rail network in Panmure.
It will include new stations at Pakuranga and Botany with three stations in between them, cycling and walking connections, urban design enhancements, revitalised town centres, and initiatives to improve traffic flow.
The Reeves Road Flyover between Pakuranga Road and Waipuna Bridge will reduce traffic congestion in the Pakuranga town centre and improve journey time and reliability.
When the busway is complete, you’ll be able to travel by bus and train between Botany and Britomart in 40 minutes, which is 20 minutes quicker than now.
