NZTA: Complete Four Lane Sections on SH16

This petition had 3,813 supporters


On completion of the NZTA 'Safer Roads Alliance' and Auckland Transport State Highway 16 upgrades in 2020 two sections of the Highway will remain two lanes and this will cause a bottle-necks and associated traffic congestion back into the Kumeu and Huapai township.

Creating four lanes from the new Tapu/Station Road intersection to 120 Main Road (New World) and then from 36 Main Road (bridge) to the Taupaki Roundabout will deal with the transfer of congestion when the 'Safer Roads' work improves traffic flow south of Kumeu; it will assist in dealing with the additional traffic anticipated from the 1200 dwellings in the Huapai Triangle 'Special Housing Area'; it will reduce congestion caused by two lanes merging into one lane and back to two lanes; it will create a safer road environment allowing vehicles to enter and exit businesses and potentially create dedicated public transport lanes during peak times in the future.

The undersigned request that the Government and NZTA start planning work and identify a budget to complete construction by the time  the Huapai Triangle 'Special Housing Area' is completed in 2021.
