Earthworks underway on Duck Creek Road.
O Mahurangi Penlink is happening!
After many, many years of planning and delays the O Mahurangi – Penlink project is officially underway.
Why do we need O Mahurangi – Penlink?
O Mahurangi – Penlink is one of the important first steps to providing people in north Auckland with real choice in the way they travel and help improve climate outcomes by providing for transport capacity and for people to travel on foot or by bike.
Substantial growth is forecast in the Whangaparāoa Peninsula, Wēiti, Orewa, Silverdale and surrounding areas. For example, in Silverdale-Dairy Flat, around 15,000 new homes are expected to be built over the next 30 years, with 6,000 of these built over the next decade.
The two-lane toll road connection will provide capacity for existing residents and future housing developments in the area.
