Manukau Harbour Crossing Project – Public Information Days

Transit New Zealand is holding two Community Information days for local residents to find out more about the upgrade of State Highway 20 as part of the Manukau Harbour Crossing project. Transit representatives and members of the project team will be on hand to discuss any queries members of the public may have about the project. Residents and interested parties are encouraged to attend either of the following days:

Tuesday 15 November
3:30pm – 6:30pm
Onehunga Community Centre
83 Church Street

Wednesday 16 November
3.30pm – 6.30pm
Mangere Bridge Primary School (auditorium)
Coronation Road
Mangere Bridge

Transit is proposing to duplicate the motorway bridge across the Manukau Harbour, widen the motorway either side of the harbour between Walmsley Road and Queenstown Road, and upgrade the Gloucester Park (Onehunga) interchange. The proposed interchange will include the construction of a new overbridge and new on and off-ramps, as well as facilities for walking and cycling.

The project is part of Transit’s overall improvement of the Auckland motorway network which is aimed at reducing congestion. It is also a key part of the Western Ring Route. Once completed, the Western Ring Route will provide a genuine alternative to SH1 between Manukau City and Albany via SH20, SH16 and SH18. Transit plans to actively manage traffic flows on both the Western Ring Route and SH1 to contribute to long-term sustainability of the network overall and to provide more reliable travel times.
