Completion of a big project like the busway creates change and some disruption. We’re keen to be good neighbours while the work is in progress and to keep you updated so you know what to expect.
Update of Tuesday 28 November
Work in progress
Pakūranga Road and Pakūranga centre car park to December
The stormwater system is being upgraded along Pakūranga Road outside Pakūranga Plaza to help reduce flood risk. The road layout has been adjusted and there are temporary entrances to some businesses.
Seven Oaks and South Eastern Highway
The pedestrian pathway linking Seven Oaks and Tī Rākau Drive is closed while the Eastern Busway is built. Alternative pedestrian access is via Palm Avenue.
William Roberts Road and Cortina Place until early 2024
Pedestrian and vehicle access is available to the Pakūranga Leisure Centre, Te Tuhi, Barnardos Early Learning Centre, Pakūranga League Club, Dementia Auckland and Cortina Place businesses.
William Roberts Road between Reeves Road and Pakūranga Road will be open to limited traffic while a stormwater pipe is installed on Pakūranga Road.
