Back to Notices of requirement to designate land (NOR)

Drury Arterials Network: Ponga Road and Ōpāheke Road Upgrade (Auckland Transport)


About the notice of requirement

​NoR lodged by Auckland Transport for a new designation to widen sections of Ponga Road and Ōpāheke Road to two lane arterials with active transport facilities, and to upgrade the Ōpāheke Road / Settlement Road intersection.

Project D5 in Drury Arterials Network package lodged by Te Tupu Ngātahi Supporting Growth Alliance.  Please refer to Part H of the Assessment of Effects on the Environment

Key features of the proposed upgrades common to each of the Project sections include:

  • A typically 24m or 20m wide road with two lanes and separated active transport facilities

  • Localised widening around the existing intersections to accommodate for vehicle queuing and tie-ins and active transport facilities/crossings

  • Batter slopes and retaining to enable widening of the corridor and/or wetland construction, and associated cut and fill activities (noting the indicative design of these are based on the existing land form and urban development adjoining these areas may change the work requirements).

  • Vegetation removal along the existing road corridor

  • Areas for construction related activities including site compounds, construction laydown, bridge works area, the re-grade of driveways and construction traffic manoeuvring.

The works described for the Projects could be carried out in stages as urban development occurs surrounding the Project area.
