CPB HEB, the company subcontracted to build Transmission Gully, has now had 67 of the 81 remaining safety and quality assurance tests required before the road can open accepted as meeting the required standards.
Waka Kotahi NZ Transport Agency says the builder of Transmission Gully CPB HEB is continuing to make good progress fixing construction defects and pavement issues required for the Transmission Gully motorway to open.
One additional safety and quality assurance test was met last week by CPB HEB, the builder of Transmission Gully. Some of the outstanding tests require remedial work before they can be met, including the road surface and pavement and construction defects.
Waka Kotahi NZ Transport Agency says Wellington Gateway Partnership (WGP) and CPB HEB Joint Venture, the builder contracted to deliver the Transmission Gully project, have run out of time to complete all of the tasks necessary for the road to open in time for Christmas.
