The Tauriko Network Plan places importance on public transport solutions, walking and cycling, and local road connections to support growth in the area.
Waka Kotahi is developing the Tauriko Network Connections Detailed Business Case which will confirm the long-term (10 plus years) improvements to State Highway 29 (SH29) from Omanawa Road to the Takitimu Drive Toll Road roundabout, and continuing on State Highway 29A (SH29A) to the Barkes Corner intersection (Pyes Pa Road / Cameron Road).
Three options have been short-listed and include an upgrade to the existing state highways (online option), a new four-lane corridor alongside the existing state highways (offline option), or a mixture of the two. All three of the options will improve safety, and provide people with better access to public transport, walking and cycling facilities, and key local roads.
Waka Kotahi is ready to share the options for the long-term transport network for SH29 through Tauriko Village and SH29A to Barkes Corner. Over the next month we will be discussing three options with landowners and stakeholders. In mid-May we will come to the community to ask what they think. After this engagement and consultation phase all the feedback will be included with partner and technical input and we will work towards the preferred option for the area.
We expect to be able to advise of the emerging favourite option in late-2021, when there will be another opportunity for people to input to make sure we’ve got it right.
If you’re a landowner who feels you may be impacted but you haven’t received a letter or email from us please email email@example.com or call 07 927 6009.
