The Takaanini section of the Mill Road Corridor runs from Alfriston Road to Old Wairoa 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 for the Takaanini stage is upgrading the existing Mill Road and
diagonal connection to Old Wairoa Road.
|May 2020||Waka Kotahi the NZ Transport Agency selected the preferred route 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.|
