The AMA is responsible for the maintenance and operation of the Auckland motorway network and State Highway 22. The work includes renewals, special projects but not large capital projects or planning issues.


The primary objective of the AMA is to provide a pleasant motorway network which road users confidently know they'll be able to use to get to their destinations comfortably, safely and quickly at all times of the day and night.

About the Auckland Motorway Alliance

The Auckland Motorway Alliance (AMA) is a formal Alliance led by the NZ Transport Agency with Fulton Hogan, Opus, Beca, Resolve Group and Armitage Systems Ltd.

AMA focus on providing safe, efficient and reliable travel and keeping communities informed about what's happening on the motorway.

The Auckland motorway system supports much of the social and economic activity of the Auckland region, with 180 kilometres of motorway, which carries more than 900,000 vehicles each day (over 8 percent of the nation’s traffic) and comprises over 1,200 structures from small culverts to large bridges. The pavement area is expected to increase by 5 percent over the next 10 years.

Why an alliance?

An alliance was decided on for the maintenance of the Auckland motorway system because of its complex infrastructure, the focus needed on stakeholders, the Transport Agency's desire to leave a lasting positive legacy and that through an alliance risk could be shared between all involved parties.
