Transmission Gully Motorway - Media Release
The Minister's pledge that Government will fund the Gully route ends decades of uncertainty. The Chair of the Transmission Gully Action Group (Inc), Grace Osvald, was responding to the Minister of Transport's announcement today.
She said it was an important day for the whole region and the country. "Our capital city will have roading resilience for the first time in its history and not have to rely on the fragile coastal route in the event of a civil defence emergency. It's great that the Minister has respected the wishes of the many thousands of submitters who a few years ago, gave the Regional Land Transport Committee a mandate to identify TGM as the only safe option for an upgrade of SH1.
"Now let's get it built!"
