Notifying about busway progress
Auckland Transport (AT) is holding information sessions about the AMETI Eastern Busway to keep the public informed about the designs and timelines for the project.
AT believes the Eastern Busway, a project in the wider Auckland Manukau Eastern Transport Initiative (AMETI), will eventually improve transport choices, reliability and public transport and cycling journey times in South-East Auckland.
Once it’s finished, commuters will be able to travel by bus and train between Botany and Britomart in less than 40 minutes.
Information sessions are being held at: 8.30am, March 16, Botany Town Centre; 8.30am, March 17, Howick Village Markets; 5.30pm, March 20, Panmure Station; 8.30am, March 24, Botany Town Centre; 6pm, March 28, Botany Night Markets; 8.30am, March 31 and April 6, Pakuranga Plaza (next to Hospice Shop); and 5.30pm, April 14, at Pakuranga Night Markets.
The full AMETI Eastern Busway is expected to be finished by 2026 and will run between Panmure and Botany Town Centre.
AT says the completed project will be supported by new cycling and walking connections, urban design enhancements, three new stations, two new bridges across the Tamaki Estuary and Pakuranga Creek, and improvements in traffic.
