Government commitment to light rail

Following ALR Group’s indicative business case (IBC) and community engagement in 2021 for light rail from City Centre to Māngere.

Government has endorsed the progression of the project with a chosen option of Tunnelled Light Rail.

Light rail will run in a tunnel from Wynyard Quarter to Mt Roskill, and at surface alongside SH20 to Māngere and the airport.

Future Rapid Transit Network The City Centre to Māngere line will be the backbone of the network; connecting with lines to the North Shore and North-West. A tunnel through the city centre better enables a seamless rapid transit connection to the North Shore/North-West. Tunnelled light rail has the capacity needed once connections to the North Shore/North-West are created.

Tunnelled light rail gives flexibility for a new tunnel or bridge across the harbour in the future. Government has brought forward planning for an additional Waitematā Harbour crossing. This recognises the key dependencies across the two city-shaping projects to realise our future rapid transit network.


Additional Waitematā Harbour Connections project (AWHC) Waka Kotahi, Auckland Council, and Auckland Transport are progressing this in partnership. Upcoming IBC will assess a range of options and recommend a preferred way forward for all transport modes – rapid transit, road and long-term walking and cycling. The IBC will: build on previous work but include updates in policies, context and ALR look at network integration and multi-modal focus, including connection with ALR urban/ land use focus (similar to ALR) to identify city-shaping opportunities. The preferred way forward is to be agreed late 2023, with a business case complete by early 2024. Engagement will take place throughout the business case phase, commencing late 2022.


This is an urban project City Centre to Māngere corridor: Contains 170,000 of Auckland's jobs – majority of which are in two of the most significant employment hubs - City Centre and the Airport. Well established residential areas in the central isthmus and south to Airport. Two major tertiary institutions - University of Auckland and AUT. Connects with a number of great destinations, like Eden Park Opportunity to leverage off projects at CRL's Maungawhau Station and in Eke Panuku's Transform Onehunga project area Planned housing developments in Mt. Roskill / Māngere via Kāinga Ora.

Auckland Council does not have the mandate to enforce moving vehicles or arrest people NZ Police resource and competing priorities across Auckland

Security can’t act as NZ Police

Auckland Council has limited resource and budget

Hamer Street closure: - It’s illegal to close public roads – so a temporary traffic management plan is required (in place currently) - To permanently close a public road, it is a lengthy process that requires public consultation and Auckland Transport approval.
