We help Aucklanders and the goods needed to move around the city with well-planned transport networks, good quality local roads and convenient, frequent public transport that more people use. We deliver a comprehensive programme of safety improvements to reduce harm across the transport network.

  • Capital investment - 3 years: $4,200 million.
  • Operating expenditure - 2022-2023: $1,733 million.

Our plan

  • Safety – continued investment to minimise harm to people using our transport system.
  • Travel choices and climate change – major investment in public transport, walking and cycling to provide Aucklanders with more attractive options and help to reduce emissions.
  • Customer experience – investment to enhance people’s experience of traveling across the Auckland region.
  • Resilience – investment to ensure that we maintain our critical assets and core services.
  • Sustainability – reducing the carbon emissions from council activities.
  • Growth – we are focusing our support on enabling growth in a few key priority areas across the region.

What we will deliver

  • Critical asset renewals.
  • Urban and Rural Road safety programmes.
  • Urban cycleways programme.

Challenges

  • Public transport recovery - ongoing COVID-19 impacts and permanent behavioural shifts towards people working from home will make growing public transport usage back to pre COVID-19 levels challenging in the short term.
  • Congestion – the benefits of decongesting Auckland’s transport network have been estimated to be between $900 million and $1.3 billion per year (approximately 1 to 1.5 per cent of Auckland’s GDP).
  • Safety – Auckland has a serious problem with road deaths and injuries. In 2020 alone, 37 people died and 489 people were seriously injured on our roads.
