Public submissions closing on Mt Messenger Bypass


The NZ Transport Agency is reminding the public that submissions on the Mt Messenger Bypass project close tomorrow (Tuesday 27 February).

Drop-in sessions and information stalls were held in Taranaki over the past fortnight to discuss the Mt Messenger Bypass Resource Management Act applications.

Transport Agency Director Regional Relationships, Central North Island, Parekawhia McLean says the sessions were an important part of keeping the public informed about the project.

“The response from the public was very positive and we would like to thank everyone who took an interest and dropped in to see us,” says Ms McLean.

The notification period for the Mt Messenger Bypass public submissions closes on 27 February 2018.

Information about the applications, supporting documents and where to make a submission, can be found on the New Plymouth District Council and Taranaki Regional Council websites: link)

The Mt Messenger Bypass Project is part of the Awakino Gorge to Mt Messenger Programme aimed at making significant improvements to State Highway 3.
