Easy access, environmental concerns and public transport options are all very important to Business North Harbour.
We will actively represent your interests, but also require your input and engagement through all consultation processes concerning the growing infrastructure demands within in the area.
We work in partnership with Auckland Transport and NZTA amongst others to develop initiatives to ensure that North Harbour remains a desirable place to work, live and relax. In order to actively represent your interests, we need your input and engagement through all consultation processes concerning our area's increasing infrastructure demands.
We are keen to hear from anyone who may have transport-related information - anything from freight difficulties to yellow lines or congestion. We are here to help with possible solutions to your transport issues.
Business North Harbour members have reported concerns around congestion in the area. As a result we have introduced, in collaboration with key stakeholders, the following key initiatives.

Cycling is a great fleet option for businesses. Trial the world’s lightest electric bikes with Auckland Transport.
Electric bikes are bicycles with a small electric motor that assist the rider's pedal-power. They are increasing in popularity and number.
E-bikes have many advantages:
We can arrange a free introductory workshop through Auckland Transport for your business and discounted hire for a trial period.
For standard push bikes, AT offer bikes and equipment to trial for one month to make it easy for your business to trial cycling during business hours.
Flexible working gives people the opportunity change their hours, days or the location where they work. Flexi-working allows people to work remotely, avoid travelling in peak hour traffic and work around personal commitments.
It doesn’t have to be a permanent or daily arrangement, flexi-working just 1 or 2 days a week could be a great choice if it fits with your business or work schedule.
What are the benefits?
Flexi-working allows employees to better manage workloads and personal commitments, which means:
Commuting to work can be stressful. Travelling outside of peak hours and working from home can help to reduce stress and peak congestion. It can also benefit the environment and the economy.
Examples of flexi-working
Technology makes it easy

Ease of access is a main focus of Business North Harbour, as we aim to improve access to and from the industrial estate. We will continue to advocate on your behalf, and work with Auckland Transport and NZTA to develop comprehensive plans for main arterial routes such as Constellation Drive, Rosedale Road and Apollo Drive.
We aim to gain understanding of the mid-term to long-term plans for these routes so that businesses and property owners can plan with confidence, and there is minimal impact on their day-to-day operations.
