Call for community feedback on eight township plans

The NZ Transport Agency is encouraging people along Northland’s Twin Coast Discovery Route to drop in to our community information sessions to give feedback on the potential improvement options being proposed for their townships.

The Transport Agency will present potential improvement options for Awanui, Horeke, Rawene, Kohukohu, Dargaville, Kaikohe, Kawakawa and Moerewa.

Northland System Manager Jacqui Hori-Hoult says work undertaken in 2016-2017 identified areas for improvement along the 800km Twin Coast Discovery Route to help grow Northland’s economy through safer, reliable and accessible journeys.

“We are seeking community feedback to help us understand which options for improvement are important to the local community and why,” says Ms Hori-Hoult.

Funding is for the development of the township plans and each plan will require further funding for implementation.
