WATCH: Western Ring Route animation

Publish Date : 24 Nov 2016

A new animation shows how the Western Ring Route will make it easier to travel through and around Auckland and the upper North Island.

The video details the work already completed and currently underway to complete the Western Ring Route, a 48km motorway that will help traffic flow better, reduce congestion on local roads and link Manukau, the central city, west Auckland and the North Shore.

Shared paths for cyclists and pedestrians

It also shows the improved links to the airport as well as new shared paths to make it easier and safer for cyclists and pedestrians.

Waterview Connection

Another key component in the Western Ring Route, the Waterview Connection, is due to open next year. The Western Ring Route is one of the central government's Roads of National Significance because of its benefits to the New Zealand economy.
