In­ten­si­fi­ca­tion in the cen­tral isth­mus is ex­pected to add to the cur­rent traf­fic woes. The area’s bus net­work is close to ca­pac­ity, par­tic­u­larly on the main ar­te­rial routes such as Do­min­ion Rd and Mt Eden Rd. Light rail has been floated as an idea for deal­ing with traf­fic and pub­lic trans­port woes - with po­ten­tial routes on San­dring­ham, Mt Eden and Manukau Roads. Light rail can carry 18,000 peo­ple an hour, com­pared with 2500 peo­ple on a bus. How­ever it comes with an es­ti­mated $1 bil­lion price tag.
