The Auckland Manukau Eastern Transport Initiative (AMETI) is a group of projects in south-east Auckland designed to improve transport choices and connections in the area – valued at $1.6b New Zealand Dollars. As part of the initiative, the Eastern Busway Alliance (EBA) was contracted to construct a new busway between two major suburbs that see high volumes of traffic congestion in Eastern Auckland. The project will grow the region’s rapid transit network and will provide more reliable bus and train travel, including 5 km of busway and 5 new bus stations, as well as 12 km of separated walking and cycling routes. By 2028, it is estimated the busway will carry 30,000 passengers a day and will significantly improve bus and train services for East Auckland.
