Transport projects in Auckland have been given a $7.3 billion boost to be distributed over the next three years.

It is part of a $24.3 billion transport package announced by Waka Kotahi NZ Transport Agency on Tuesday.

Waka Kotahi spokesperson Steve Mutton said the funding will support growth with more accessible, sustainable travel options.

“Auckland is a world class city and it needs a world-class transport system that is safe and efficient to keep everyone moving as New Zealand’s largest city continues to grow,” he said.
