Waiuku’s proposed Transport System

There will be two bus services for Waiuku:
1. A limited weekday Waiuku to Papakura service which goes via Kingseat in order to provide the best peak service for onward travel.
2. A Waiuku to Pukekohe service via Patumahoe that will divert via Glenbrook Vintage Railway on Sundays and during public holiday periods in the months that the railway is open. This service will run off-peak and during weekends.
There was support for buses to use the route shown on the map in the consultation brochure (Kitchener Rd, King St, and Constable Rd) but to divert via Queen St and Kitchener Rd through the town centre. The main stopping points that respondents indicated were Kentish Hotel, old New World car park and the netball courts on Kitchener Rd.
Taking into consideration this local feedback the route will enter Waiuku via Kitchener Road and exit via Queen St, Victoria Ave and Colombo Rd.
It is intended that the Pukekohe/Waiuku New Network will be part of the first round of PTOM tendering negotiations and implemented at the same time as other South Auckland contracts in mid-2016 following tender in mid-2015. Timetables will be available prior to implementation to allow people time to plan their travel. A comprehensive public information campaign will be carried out prior to any services changing.

Since you’re here… we have a small favour to ask. More and more people want the Post than ever but advertising revenues across the media are falling fast. And unlike many news organisations, we haven’t put up a paywall – we want to keep our journalism as open as we can. So you can see why we need to ask for your help. The Post’s independent, investigative journalism takes a lot of time, money and hard work to produce. With investigative reporting, we often don't know at the beginning how a story will unfold and how long it might take to uncover. This can mean it is costly – particularly as we often face legal threats that attempt to stop our reporting. But we remain committed to raising important questions and exposing wrongdoing. And we do it because we believe our perspective matters – because it might well be your perspective, too. If everyone who reads our reporting, who likes it, helps to support it, our future would be much more secure. For as little as NZ$5, you can support the Post – and it only takes a minute. Thank you.
