Auckland Transport (AT) and the Waiheke Local Board are working together on a collaborative plan for the next ten years of Waiheke’s transport system.
Project status: Consultation
Project zone: Central
The Waiheke 10 Year Transport Plan combines current planned and committed projects with a jointly agreed new list of upcoming proposed projects. The plan sets out a list of projects, plans, services and processes to be proposed for funding over the next funding cycle of 2021 to 2031.
The Waiheke 10 Year Transport Plan is an outcome of a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) between Auckland Transport and the Waiheke Local Board. The MoU forms the basis of an ongoing relationship between AT and the Waiheke Local Board, with the plan being a core activity within that relationship.
The projects included in the plan that are selected for development will be considered for inclusion in the 2021 Regional Land Transport Plan (RLTP). The RLTP is the overarching programme comprising all of AT’s activities for a ten-year period, with funding confirmed for the first three years of that period. While the selected projects from the plan will be submitted for consideration in the RLTP, they are not guaranteed to receive funding.

How the projects in the plan were selected
AT put together a working group of staff from across its organisation who are involved in Waiheke projects and day to day operations on the island. This group collaborated with the Waiheke Local Board through a series of workshops to collate and refine a list of 107 projects. Members of the Waiheke Transport Forum also participated in the workshops. The Waiheke Transport Forum is an advisory group made up of members of the Local Board, AT, official services, and members of the local community. Once a full list of proposed projects was collated, the Local Board, with assistance from AT, scored each proposal against a selection of criteria to rank them in order of priority.
The core selection criteria were:
- Safety – Improves safety for road users.
- Strategic Network Fulfilment – Helps to make the network more effective.
- Character – Provides a significant contribution to - or does not detract from - the character of the area.
- Access – Offers flexibility for different transport modes/improves access for people with accessibility needs.
The projects will also be scored against the following delivery prioritisation criteria:
- Cost – Cost of delivery weighted against potential benefits.
- Delivery proximity – Speed in which a project could be delivered.
