Feedback closed on 20 June 2022

Feedback on the station locations for the Rapid Transit as part of the North West Auckland's transport future has now closed. Thank you to everyone who had their say.

View a summary of the feedback we received.

Next steps

Route protection of the preferred alignment (Notice of Requirement) will occur in late 2022.

An important part of developing a NoR is consulting with those potentially affected – the community, Manawhenua, businesses, government and community organisations. Find out more information on these processes.

Brigham Creek Interchange

We’ve investigated the best way for cyclists, pedestrians, public transport users and drivers to travel through the interchange and the recommended option is a ‘split fork’ design.

This page details more information on the interchange, and what the next steps are for this project.

Whilst we are not seeking feedback directly on the interchange, we encourage you to have your say on the future stations along the Rapid Transit Corridor.

The Brigham Creek Interchange will allow a wide range of travel modes to move and transfer easily through the interchangeincluding new public transport routes via the future Rapid Transit Corridor, new walking and cycling networks and the new Alternative State Highway.

The interchange will also improve local trips by upgrading Fred Taylor Drive and Brigham Creek Road. It will play a key role to help new active and public transport connections work efficiently so more people can access safe, sustainable travel choices.

In the future, we’re also proposing to upgrade the current roundabout at the intersection of Brigham Creek Road, Fred Taylor Drive and SH16.

We’re working to refine the footprint for the proposed Interchange by considering environmental and ecological features and how the new interchange will help people connect to new housing areas, future town centres and the rest of the transport network.

We’ve investigated the best way for cyclists, pedestrians, public transport users and drivers to travel through the interchange and have recommended a design. This is the preferred design option because:

  • It is safer for active and public transport modes as it has fewer intersections within the interchange.
  • It is more attractive for active mode users as it has better separation between the motorway and local roads and will provide access to roadside amenities.
  • It provides more reliable access for both the strategic connections and local roads, allowing people to move through the interchange to and from all North West areas, and improving journey times.

Next steps

Over the coming months, we’ll continue our investigations and talk to local property owners, developers and key community stakeholders. This will help us understand the environment in and around the proposed interchange and confirm the land needed ahead of future construction.

Our planning work has considered how best to maximise the use of land around the new interchange, while minimising impact to local properties and the environment, as well as how best to integrate with other proposed projects; the Alternative State Highway, the Rapid Transit Corridor, and cycling and walking corridor.

It has also considered how the new interchange will integrate with local roads and other long-term transport projects such as a future rapid transit corridor from the city centre to Westgate and a future direct connection between SH16 and SH18.

Once we’ve completed our engagement and further investigations we will prepare and lodge our Notices of Requirement to protect the land. Find out more information on these processes.

The Brigham Creek Interchange is a long-term project and is yet to be prioritised for funding with construction expected within the next 20 to 30 years.
