The Papakura section of the Mill Road Corridor runs from Old Wairoa Road to Hunua Road. The Mill Road Phase One project will upgrade the 21.5-kilometre Mill Road Corridor, providing an additional route between Manukau and Drury.
The preferred route of the section is to widen along Dominion Road.
|May 2020||Waka Kotahi the NZ Transport Agency 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.|
|Jun 2021||Following a re-evaluation of the New Zealand Upgrade Program (NZUP), the existing proposal for Mill Road Corridor was deferred, with no indication of future timelines. Instead, a smaller scope of works was proposed to upgrade existing two-lane Mill Road from Flat Bush to Alfriston. Targeted safety upgrades between Alfriston and Papakura is also part of the new scope. Value of this work was not confirmed.|
