If you’re thinking about buying property in West Auckland, it’s worth checking out the North Western Widening and Improvements section of the Auckland Motorways website. Planned improvements include:
- The addition of one or more lanes in both directions between St Lukes Road and Royal Road
- The improvement of the Te Atatu and Lincoln Road interchanges
- Bus lanes and improved pedestrian and cycling access along the motorway
- Raising of the Causeway between Waterview and Rosebank Road to prevent flooding
The planned improvements could make the journey between the CBD and places like Te Atatu Peninsula and Henderson a whole lot easier where the interchanges are badly out of date with the current traffic volumes. As these changes seek to reduce travel times they will more than likely also do their bit to improve property values in West Auckland.
