NZTA to give Southern Links detail


The NZ Transport Agency will hold its final round of information days for the Southern Links road network project on May 22, 24 and 26.

The local event, in the Tamahere Community Centre on Thursday, May 24 from 2pm to 7pm, will give more detail on the location of the proposed road network, including the width of the proposed land designated for the road corridor, the properties that will be affected and the types of measures that will be needed to mitigate effects such as noise.

A residents group opposing the road, which will cut through the heart of Tamahere has already urged Tamahere residents to make it “crystal clear” to Transport Minister Gerry Brownlee and NZTA that the Tamahere and wider community strongly opposes the proposal.

By the time the information days are held “it is likely a lodgement date for the Notice of Requirement to designate the route will be known,” NZTA said in its latest Southern Links newsletter.

The volume and nature of the feedback received on the project so far “has meant the project team needed more time to address the matters raised and consider, where appropriate, how they can be incorporated into the design of the network,” the agency said.

Information displayed will show how the various interchanges and intersections will look, it said.
