The City Centre to Māngere (CC2M) mass transit corridor is a key component of Auckland’s future transport network. The CC2M project was prioritised through the Auckland Transport Alignment Project 2018 for the 2018-2028 decade.
In 2018, the New Zealand Transport Agency (NZTA) commenced preparation of an indicative business case for the project. In April 2018, NZ Infra (a joint venture of the New Zealand Superannuation Fund and Canadian institutional investors CDPQ Infra), submitted an option for an alternative delivery and financing approach to the CC2M Project.
The Government has asked the Ministry of Transport to run a process with both NZTA and NZ Infra where they further develop their separate options for Auckland’s rapid transit project, and these options are due in early 2019.
Our key priority is to ensure that city centre business interests are reflected in the project from the outset and that the impact of construction is assessed and well-managed.
