Wellington photographer Alastair Grant has self-published a collection of landscape photographs in a book titled 'Transmission Gully - Celebration of a Motorway', showcasing the construction of the motorway between 2015 and 2022.
In the previous newsletter, the builder signalled upcoming work planned to extend State Highway (SH59) from Paekākāriki and Mackays Crossing. This work is now underway and has a target completion date of mid-November 2023.
MetService weather experts John Law and Peter Fisher share their excitement over the uniquely placed Transmission Gully weather station, how the readings help keep drivers safe, and why the weather will always be more than just small talk for them.
The impact of noise on nearby residents from the operation of the Te Aranui o Te Rangihaeata – Transmission Gully Motorway has been a key consideration since the early stages of the project and throughout the consenting phase.
