While it's not possible to solely build our way out of our transport challenges, population growth means we need to continue to expand and upgrade our transport networks. An increase in funding from recent levels will be required to make genuine progress.
The very large scale of investment required across the whole network means that funding needs to be targeted, strategic and effective. Fixing all of Auckland’s transport challenges at once is unaffordable, which means we need to focus first on the most severe and important challenges.
Joint strategic planning and integrated priority setting are essential for deciding when, where and how investment in new infrastructure should be made.
Working together, regionally and nationally, will help to ensure that new investments deliver best value for money, focus on the most appropriate travel mode and are made at the right time and the right scale.
The future is uncertain, so it's important to trial small-scale interventions and test decisions against a variety of futures.
Our Development Strategy has detail on key transport investments that will be needed to support development across Auckland.
