Next steps

The timeline below shows our estimate of how the project will progress in 2023. The project is expected to be completed in 2027.

Date in 2023


January to May

Auckland Council continue to process consents for the area between Pakuranga and Ti Rakau Drive Bridge. The period for public submissions has now closed. A public hearing is scheduled to be held at the Uxbridge Theatre during the first two weeks of May

From mid-February

Work sites will be established on Pakuranga Road, Ti Rakau Drive and William Roberts Road ahead of construction starting, and may include the relocation of some bus stops while work is in progress.

Ongoing to mid-year

Deconstruction and removal of vacant properties along Ti Rakau Drive and William Roberts Road


Planned lodgement (with Auckland Council) of the consent packages for the commercial precinct on Ti Rakau Drive, the Burswood area and towards Botany. It is currently anticipated that this will be publicly notified.


Discussions with AT on how best to manage speed and ensure safety for everyone when the busway is completed. Ti Rakau Drive will be a very different environment when the busway is in place, with thousands of pedestrians crossing it every day to catch a bus. We need to ensure that pedestrians are safe and that motorists drive within the speed limit. We’re working with stakeholder groups to ensure safety measures are effective and disruption is minimised.
