Penlink, a proposal dating back to the 1980s start to development of Gulf Harbour at the end of the Whangaparaoa Peninsula, is an integral feature of the urban development of the Hibiscus Coast, 30-40km north of downtown Auckland.
20 years after a Whangaparaoa Peninsula section was acquired for widening of the peninsula’s main road, nearly 3 years after the Auckland Transport board determined it was no longer needed for that purpose and 2 years after the rationalisation process began, an Auckland Council committee will determine on Tuesday whether the site will be sold.
When my wife & I moved to the Whangaparaoa Peninsula at the end of 1982 the district council had plans drawn up for 6 lanes along the early part of the peninsula, narrowing as you went on.
$102 million for the Mill Rd corridor and $66 million for Penlink are the 2 big new roading infrastructure confirmations arising from an update to ATAP (the transport alignment project) between Auckland Council & the Government.
