Ideas on how to improve Nelson’s road network welcomed


It’s not too late to give your ideas on how to improve Nelson’s arterial transport network, with the NZ Transport Agency inviting feedback up to Sunday 24 April.

As part of the Programme Business Case for the Nelson Southern Link Investigation, the Transport Agency is encouraging people in the Nelson area to make their voices heard on how to improve Nelson’s transport network and solve two identified issues: congestion and accessibility.

“We thank everyone who has already shared their ideas with us. We want to make sure that people know they still have the opportunity to give us their feedback during this phase of the investigation,” NZ Transport Agency regional director Raewyn Bleakley says.

“There are a variety of ways people can tell us what they think, including filling out the feedback form which is available at the Richmond and Nelson Public Libraries or via the Transport Agency’s website. There is also a final information session at the Victory Community Centre on Monday 18 April, from 5.30pm -8.30pm,” Ms Bleakley says.

“Everyone’s feedback will be taken into account along with other important criteria. We’re looking for all ideas at this stage.”

Additional information and an online feedback form can be found on (external link)as well as at the Nelson Public Libraries, and the Richmond Library during their opening hours. People can also phone 0508 NSL INFO/0508 675 4636 or email

The deadline for feedback to be received is Sunday 24 April 2016.
