Local communities played a huge role in planning for the MacKays Crossing to Peka Peka Expressway. They continue to be involved during construction through a community liaison group, neighbourhood forums, events organised by the project team, site tours, an information centre, presentations, newsletters and the internet.
The Transport Agency’s aims are always to show respect for the communities it is affecting, to minimise the community impacts of construction, and to listen to and address any concerns and issues that arise promptly and appropriately.
Some of the highlights of this project’s community liaison have been:
Involvement with Big Digs at Raumati Beach, giving children a chance to operate a little digger
Holding community “peat grabs”, providing excavated peat to local gardeners
The Alliance has also contributed to community causes:
