Traffic, Transport & Roading Updates
Business North Harbour members have identified easy access, environmental concerns and improved public transport options as high priorities.
We’re here to actively represent your interests. To do this effectively, we need you to share your opinions and ideas on the infrastructure consultation processes that our growing area demands.
BNH works primarily in partnership with Auckland Transport (AT) and New Zealand Transport Agency (NZTA) to develop initiatives that ensure North Harbour remains a desirable place to live, work, socialise, play or own a commercial property.
Safety and Access
This critical area affects everyone within the North Harbour Business Improvement District (BID), be the workers, students, residents or visitors.
Business North Harbour’s main focus is improved ease of access to and from, and within the Business Improvement District area.
We continue to advocate on your behalf and work with AT, NZTA and other transport related organisations to develop comprehensive plans for all roading developments within the area including the Northern Corridor Improvements (new motorway connections) and Watercare’s future proofing Auckland’s wastewater, in addition to providing feedback on the arterial routes such as Constellation Drive, Apollo Drive and Rosedale Road.
By understanding the mid to long-term plans for greater area, we can help business and property owners plan with confidence to reduce the impact of congestion on their day-to-day operations.
