Photo supplied AUCKLAND’S newest road is expected to take thousands of trucks a day off Panmure roads when it opens to traffic early next month. Auckland Transport (AT) will open the 1.5km Te Horeta Rd in Panmure to traffic on Sunday, November 2. The road goes through a 220- metre tunnel, has new cycle lanes and a shared bike and foot path alongside, which will all open at the same time. A community event will be held on Saturday, November 1, so peo- ple in the area can walk or cycle through the tunnel, along the road and on the shared path. Completing the new road is the final major milestone for the $180 million first stage of the Auckland Manukau Eastern Transport Ini- tiative (AMETI). It also included building the new Panmure Station, three new bridges and new cycling and walk- ing links. AMETI is a group of projects aimed at giving people in the south-eastern suburbs improved transport choices and better con- nections to the rest of Auckland. AT chairman Dr Lester Levy says finishing the first stage of AMETI is an important milestone for trans- port improvements in the east. “People in the area are beginning to realise the benefits of the longer term programme of improvements for the south-east. “It’s also one of the first major transport infrastructure projects to be completed by AT since the new Auckland Council was established in 2010.” AMETI programme director Peter King says the new road is expected to carry 20,000 vehicles a day, including 2400 trucks. “Te Horeta Road will link Morrin Road to Mt Wellington Highway to cut peak journey times between Mt Wellington and Glen Innes. “The direct link will bypass the Panmure Roundabout and Ellerslie-Panmure Highway, eas- ing congestion on this route. “People have seen significant improvements already with the Panmure Station opening last January. “The new road, cycle and foot- paths are another step forward in providing improved transport choices and better connections for people in the south-east,” Mr King says. Maungakiekie-Tamaki Local Board chairman Simon Randall says the name Te Horeta Road was selected after public consultation on a number of new road titles. “A number of names were con- sidered, including some suggested by iwi and other names that reflect the area’s history. “Te Horeta is a noted tupuna/ ancestor of the Waiohua peoples and had an association with the area over a period of time.” The 220m tunnel runs along- side the rail line at Panmure Sta- tion between Mountain Road and Ellerslie-Panmure Highway. A new road for Panmure Station has been built on top of it. About 5000 truckloads of basalt rock from Mt Wellington lava flows was removed for the tunnel. The rock was crushed and reused to build the new road and two new bridges on Ellerslie-Panmure Highway. The project takes an integrated approach to improving transport, with the new Panmure Station and new cycle and footpaths being built alongside the new road. Future stages of AMETI include a busway between Panmure Sta- tion, Pakuranga and Botany, upgrading Panmure Roundabout to an intersection with traffic lights, and a number of new cycle and footpaths. For more information, an aerial video and photos of the new road, station and other upgrades are online at www.at.govt.nz/projects- roadworks/ameti/.
