GETBA is focused on the efficient movement of freight and people

East Tamaki is a major employment hub for 30,000 staff. The efficient movement of both freight and people is key to the ability of businesses to improve productivity and to attract and retain staff.

Our transport strategy takes a two-pronged approach to addressing congestion:

  • Advocating for roading infrastructure improvements (e.g. East-West Link and local roads), and
  • Supporting local businesses with travel planning (Travelwise Choices)

Delayed planned roading developments

  •  Gossamer/Trugood/Cryers/Harris area

Auckland Transport are proposing to create an extra lane from Ti Rakau into Gossamer in 2018 as an interim measure prior to AMETI (2025!). We continue to lobby for a roundabout at the corner of Cryers Road and Trugood Drive.

  • Widening of Smales and Allens Roads and new intersection

Construction originally set for 2016 - 2017, dependent on funding. Since allocated a lower priority and no funding allocated at this point.

  • Realignment of the Preston/East Tamaki and Ormiston Road intersection

Construction originally set for 2015 - 2016, dependent on funding. Since allocated a lower priority and no funding allocated at this point.
