The Wiztrak Penlink-Puhinui proposes an Urban Mid-Speed (average speed approx 90km/h) Metro dual line starting at Orewa running through Silverdale down to Whangaparaoa across to Stillwater, to Dairy Flat, and down to Albany, Glenfield, a Harbour Crossing combined with walking bridge and cycleway to the CBD to Onehunga, Mangere, Airport and finally Puhinui Station. This journey from Orewa to Puhinui Station includes approximately 23 stops within a 46 minute total journey time. Far superior to Light Rail travel.
It proposes a Medium-Speed dual (elevated) guideway connecting the North-South geographic extremes of the Supercity in the most efficient way possible. Importantly, this proposal includes a harbour crossing, combined with an integrated walkway & cycleway. It is designed to work in conjunction with the Shuttlezone concept and supersedes the need to build Penlink, which we believe will ultimately add to traffic congestion and road deaths.
The next stages to follow would be High-Speed Intercity connections from Orewa north to Whangarei, and Puhinui south to Tauranga Via Cambridge & Hamilton. These Ultra-high speed intercity services would offer safe, clean and rapid transport far superior to any other current mode of transit, including EV’s.
Signing this petition will bring us a step closer to achieving this transport revolution for New Zealand.
