Eastern Busway - Pakuranga Bus Station and Reeves Road Flyover

The Reeves Road flyover will follow the Panmure to Pakuranga project and will provide a direct connection between Pakuranga Road and Waipuna Bridge, easing congestion on Pakuranga Road and Ti Rakau Drive. The project forms a key part of the Auckland Manukau Eastern Transport Initiative (AMETI), which is aimed at improving transport choices for the city's eastern suburbs. AMETI will deliver rapid, high frequency public transport between Panmure, Pakuranga and Botany. 

The project also includes the investigation, design and construction of a new bus station at Pakuranga Town Centre.
