We forecast the number of daily trips to and from the airport will increase from 63,000 today to 140,000 in 2044. The majority of these trips today are in private cars.

Our 30 year vision includes a wide range of transport modes to provide Aucklanders and visitors with greater choice and flexibility around how they get to and from the airport.

Initiatives already underway include:
In addition to these works the Auckland Transport Operations Centre (ATOC) will optimise traffic signals to increase traffic flows at peak times on the state highways and airport roads, and publish additional airport-specific travel time information.
Longer term we will work with NZTA and AT to deliver additional network capacity and improve travel times. These include:
