Project scope

Part of Auckland's Supporting Growth Programme, Mill Road is an additional route from Manukau to Drury. It will provide better access for an estimated 120,000-plus people who will reside in Auckland’s southern suburbs over the next three decades.

The new 21.5km corridor, running parallel to State Highway 1, is set to provide residents with better access to Manukau, Manurewa, Papakura and Drury. The development upgrades the existing two-lane sections of Mill Road to four lanes, connecting through to the new sections of the corridor being built across greenfield sites. These new sections will connect to Drury through Opaheke and Papakura. The project includes an interchange overbridge at Drury to connect safely with SH1. The new four-lane corridor will include separated walking and cycling facilities, and provide more reliable public transport services.

The project is set to be delivered in following stages:

  • Takaanini Section
  • Papakura Section, and
  • Drury Section.

 

Funding

In April 2018, the estimated $507 million Mill Road Corridor (phase 1) was included in the updated 2018 ATAP as an investment priority for the 2018-2028 decade. The project was also included in the Draft Regional Land Transport Plan (2018-2028).

On 29 January 2020, the NZ Government announced NZ$1.35 billion in funding for all stages of the Mill Road Corridor as part of the NZ$12 billion New Zealand Upgrade Program.

In January 2020, the NZ Upgrade Program provided an estimated $1.354 billion to complete all stages of Mill Road.

Project scope

Mill Road Corridor development upgrades the existing two-lane sections of Mill Road to four lanes, connecting through to the new sections of the corridor being built across greenfield sites. These new sections connect to Drury through Opāheke and Papakura. The proposed Drury section runs from Hunua Road to SH1 in Drury South.

In 2018, New Zealand Transport Agency had an initial community feedback period regarding the project. Considering the feedback, following options were considered for extending the Mill Road Corridor from Papakura through to a new proposed interchange at SH1 in Drury South:

  • Option A – a new road west of Drury Hills Road
  • Option B – upgrading Drury Hills Road and passing through Old Barn Road
  • Option C – a new road further west of Drury Hills Road, and
  • Option D – a new road through the Future Urban Zone and using Cossey Road.

 

In May 2020, the NZTA chose Option A as the preferred upgrade option and put the proposed plans for the section on exhibition, with feedback closing on 12 June 2020.
