AMETI (Auckland Manukau Eastern Transport Initiative) Eastern Busway will create a dedicated, congestion-free busway between Panmure, Pakuranga, and Botany town centres. The busway is supported by new cycling and walking connections, urban design improvements, safety and signal improvements at key intersections, and more. The project is delivered in 4 stages.
Once the busway is completed, you’ll be able to travel by bus and train between Botany and Britomart in less than 40 minutes. The busway will be supported by 3 new stations at Panmure, Pakuranga, and Botany, new cycling and walking connections, urban design enhancements, and improvements for general traffic such as advanced signalling at important intersections.
Major transport improvements have already been made with the opening of the new Panmure Station (now the fifth busiest station in Auckland) and the development of Te Horeta Road.
The next stage will be construction of a busway with buses travelling on their own congestion-free lanes between Panmure and Pakuranga town centres.
The final stage between Panmure and Botany is due for completion in 2026.
Eke Panuku Development Auckland helps to regenerate parts of Auckland - from small projects that refresh a site or building, to major transformations of town centres or neighbourhoods. The vision for Panmure is to create a vibrant town centre that is a great place to live, visit and do business; building on its distinct landscape, transport connectivity, local services and amenities and sense of community. Located within the Tamaki Transformation area, Panmure town centre is well-located with excellent public transport links to the wider Auckland area.
Panmure was chosen as a location for regeneration due to large areas of underused, council-owned land in the town centre that represent significant redevelopment opportunities. The project area covers 43ha and encompasses land owned by council, Tamaki Regeneration Company (see below), the Crown and Auckland Transport (AT), who Panuku will work in partnership with to facilitate the staged transition of sites for development. Panuku will also work closely with TRC, who through its Regeneration Programme will build 7500 new homes across Tamaki in the next 15-20 years.
Enlivening the main street is a key part of the future plan for Panmure. Panuku will work closely with the business community and look to introduce fresh retail and commercial space into Panmure to strengthen the appeal of the town centre and the diversity of what's on offer. A number of sites for mixed-use development will increase the number of homes and further expand the range of services the community can access. A multi-purpose community facility with a civic space is envisaged at the heart of the town centre where the community could come together and access key facilities such as a library and a community centre.
The High Level Project Plan (HLPP) plan for Panmure town centre outlines the context for the project, the key decisions and main phases required to complete it over the next 15-20 years, during which time the population is expected to grow significantly. The plan was informed by public feedback gathered from a series of community sessions and an online survey. People who visit, live and work in Panmure were asked to share their thoughts on safety, community facilities and transport connections to and from the town centre, including walking and cycling. The sessions were supported by representatives from Panuku, members of the Maungakiekie-Tāmaki Local Board and representatives from TRC.

The Tāmaki Regeneration Company (TRC) is working with, and for, the people of Tāmaki to shape the future of our community together.
Formed in 2012, TRC is owned by the Government and Auckland Council. The Tāmaki Housing Association (THA) is part of TRC and has looked after the whānau that live in state housing in Tāmaki since 2016.
Their goal is to enable the people of Tāmaki - especially Māori and Pasifika people - to reach their aspirations. Focus is on empowering and enhancing the wellbeing of tangata whenua and tangata tiriti. They honour Te Tiriti o Waitangi as the founding document of Aotearoa, and embed the principles into decision-making.
They work to deliver better housing, infrastructure, transport, education and jobs.
They collaborate closely with mana whenua, community groups, schools and businesses to deliver four key priorities:
Social (supporting Tāmaki whānau to thrive)
Housing (building homes and communities)
Economic (helping the local economy to thrive)
Placemaking (supporting local cultural identity and sense of belonging)
