Better Transport



Better Transport

Easy access, environmental concerns and public transport options are all very important to Business North Harbour.

We 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 or own a commercial property. In order to actively represent your interests, we need your input and engagement through all consultation processes concerning our area's increasing infrastructure demands. 


Northern Corridor Improvements Project 

This project will provide better links for Northern Motorway (SH1) travellers in Auckland and improve transport options on the North Shore for freight, cars, pedestrians and cyclists. It includes a new motorway connection between SH1 and SH18, opening up access to the Western Ring Route and airport.

Parking Solutions                                               

The North Harbour area is at near maximum parking capacity due to employment numbers exceeding available parking spaces. Together with Auckland Transport, Business North Harbour is working to find solutions for local businesses with employees who may be leaving home earlier to beat the rush and find a car park. Find out more...

 Keeping Auckland Moving                               


Auckland Transport have launched a campaign to try and encourage us to 'spread the jam' and look at their working week and how they could make small chnages which could in tern make a big difference to congestion on Aucklands roads.


Safety and Access                                               

This area of Business North Harbour’s operations affects everyone working, living, visiting or studying within the North Harbour Business Improvement District. 

Ease of access is a main focus of Business North Harbour. 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.
