20Connect will improve journey reliability along State Highway 20, State Highway 20A and State Highway 20B to provide more choice for people when travelling around southwest Auckland, including to and from the airport.
On Friday 16 April, many residents and guests celebrated the opening of improved State Highway 20B following 15 months of the construction works including night time closures.

Waka Kotahi NZ Transport Agency would like to thank the residents along SH20B and all road users for your patience and support for the improvement works.
