Why do I need a PLAN?

Why do I need a PLAN?

The AMETI Eastern Busway Project build is about to begin. This transformational transport project will provide better connections, faster journey times, and improved travel choice for you. The Eastern Busway will operate in similar way to the Northern Busway and will be supported by improved cycling and walking connections, improvements for general traffic and enhanced landscaping and street upgrades for the surrounding area.

Like with all major projects, there's going to be some disruption along some major roads in East Auckland - particularly during morning and afternoon peak traffic times.

We all know sitting in traffic isn't fun, but by work together and all doing our piece, we can help minimise congestion and make the most out of our commutes. That's why it's good to have a plan B when plan A isn't an option.

Where is this happening?

Auckland Council owned properties are currently being removed in preparation for major construction of the Panmure to Pakuranga stage in March 2019. The heavily affected areas during construction will be Panmure Roundabout, Lagoon Drive, Panmure Bridge and Pakuranga Road.

  • ALTERNATE ROUTE:

If you're traveling into town, take Waipuna Bridge or Highbrook Drive, to avoid the traffic on Panmure Bridge. Check out Google maps to find alternative options.

This may not be an option for you, but many organisations are encouraging 'flexi-time' with their staff. By commuting outside of peak hour traffic, you can avoid the congestion and arrive fresh to start your day.
