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.
