Mangere cycling improvements Mangere cycling improvements

The Māngere cycling improvements project will upgrade the walking and cycling network in Māngere, and create better cycling connections so trips to work, schools and town centres are easier and safer by bike and foot.

Project status: Consultation - closed 13 December 2020.
Project zone: South

Project overview

These improvements are planned as part as early deliverables from the Southwest Gateway.

Programme, which is three key transport projects (20Connect, Airport to Botany Rapid Transit and Auckland Airport precinct developments) that will provide choice and reliability for how people travel around the southwest and southeast Auckland, including to and from the airport and its neighbouring Airport precinct employment zones.

Auckland Transport is taking a Vision Zero approach to road safety. This means we are striving to have zero deaths or serious injuries on our transport system by 2050.

The Māngere Cycling Improvements project consists of five new designs/upgrades. The proposals combine with the existing walking and cycling facilities to create safe links for people travelling between Māngere Bridge, Māngere, Auckland Airport and the Airport Oaks employment areas.

The proposed improvements also provide wider connections to Onehunga, once the upgraded Māngere Bridge is complete in 2022.

  • Around 465 parking spaces will be impacted over the wider cycling route area to create the new cycling facilities.
