A $100 million contract has been signed for Stage One of a project to transform the AMETI Eastern Busway between Panmure and Pakuranga. Along with the new Panmure rail station it will allow commuters to travel from Botany to Britomart in less than 40 minutes, cutting travel time by more than a third, AT said in a statement.
Frequency have been engaged since 2017 to develop and maintain programme control systems for the project including the overall programme and providing project reporting to the Project Control Group (PCG).
Stage one of the $1.4 billion project will consist of several major pieces of infrastructure, including the completion of the busway between Panmure and Botany, stations at Pakuranga and Botany, the Reeves Road flyover at Pakuranga Town Centre and better space for people walking or cycling. Parts of Lagoon Drive and Pakuranga Road will also be widened to create a dedicated, congestion-free busway, and the Panmure Roundabout will also be turned into a safer signalled intersection.
