Due to the explosive growth that Flat Bush and surrounding districts are experiencing, Auckland Transport have had to expect that modifications and enhancements to the roading infrastructure must occur to handle the expected growth in the region.
Changing land use, population growth and planned housing developments are adding pressure on transport infrastructure in south Auckland.
- An estimated 10,000 new houses are fast tracked in special housing areas in southern parts of Auckland, including 4,470 houses in Flat Bush, and 1,770 houses in Takanini.
- A further 12,000 – 14,000 houses are anticipated to be constructed in the Takanini, Opaheke, Drury and Karaka future urban zone under the proposed Auckland Unitary Plan.
- New industrial areas in Takanini and Drury south will create 6,000 new jobs.
- We predict traffic volumes will increase to a level that is more than the current Redoubt and Mill roads can cope with.
- Congestion is already affecting parts of Redoubt Road and Mill Road and this will double on some sections in 10 to 15 years.
Improvements to the Mill Road corridor between Manukau, Papakura and Drury are identified as a priority in the Auckland Long Term Plan (LTP).
Have a look at the Video Clip here to give you an idea of how it will all look once completed – very interesting and very welcoming as well.
Rental properties in the area are also expected to rise requiring property management companies like RER Property Management Ltd to help in addressing the management of these rentals and given that we are located in the heart of Manukau or essentially the mid-way point between the East and South Auckland & Manukau makes as ideal choice for property management in the region.
