With no additional funding - $3,695 million capital spend over three years

We would be able to:

  • continue investment in the City Rail Link
  • renew assets in line with the asset management plans
  • continue road safety programmes, but not at the same pace
  • undertake committed work on projects such as the Eastern Busway, Rosedale Bus Station, Matakana Link, and Wolverton Culverts
  • make substantial progress on the Urban Cycleway programme
  • expand the electric trains fleet in time for the City Rail Link opening
  • complete Northwestern Interim Bus Improvements (funded by Crown Infrastructure Partners).

However there would be a $400 million reduction in transport capital investment over the next three years compared to pre-COVID projections.

This would mean:

  • minimal investment in projects in local board areas, seal extensions, and Park and Ride facilities
  • no investment in roading projects such as Glenvar, Lincoln and Lake roads
  • no further investment in the ongoing walking and cycling programme
  • minimal investment in supporting growth
  • missing out on up to $200 million of Waka Kotahi subsidies (because the council and Waka Kotahi co-fund transport investment, if our funding reduces then so does theirs).

With the additional funding of $550 million proposed - $4,245 million capital spend over three years

We could also:

  • increase investment in projects in local board areas
  • complete the Urban Cycleways programme faster
  • improve road safety and Papakāinga/Marae programmes being delivered earlier and evenly phased
  • accelerate investment to support growth areas
  • accelerate investment in bus priority, safety and cycling improvements as part of the Connected Communities programme
  • accelerate the Wellesley Street component of the city centre bus improvements to better align with the City Rail Link opening
  • progress Lincoln Road, Lake/Esmonde Road and Matiatia Park'n'ride
  • deliver Glenvar Road Improvements and Orakei shared path
  • protect the airport to Botany route
  • invest up to $6 million each year in seal extensions.
