Work on a $100 million plan for dedicated bus lanes on the Northwestern Motorway started on Tuesday, and will mean faster and more frequent bus trips into the city for West Aucklanders, NZ Herald reports. The project will see the construction of new bus interchanges at Te Atatū and Lincoln Rd, and later a major bus station at Westgate. The project comes as frustration grows at the lack of transport and other infrastructure in northwest Auckland, which is expected to grow by more than 100,000 people over the next 30 years with more than 40,000 new homes.
