NZTA’s Regional Director for Auckland and Northland Wayne McDonald said 5,000 copies of a detailed information brochure including maps, design and construction concepts and feedback forms were distributed to residents, community centres, libraries and others earlier this week.
“We understand that this project will have a significant impact on the community and we’re committed to working with residents and others to get their views on how the project can best by integrated with the surrounding urban area,” Mr McDonald said.
