24 March 2016 | Transmission Gully Project | Media release
Work has begun on establishing a site access off the southbound lane of the Porirua-Johnsonville Motorway just north of the Collins Avenue Bridge near Linden to support the construction of the Transmission Gully Motorway.
An 80km/h speed restriction is also now in place to allow the safe merging of construction vehicles and motorway traffic. The access point and reduced speed limit will remain in place for the duration of the project in 2020.
Project Director Boyd Knights asks that people respect the traffic management measures.
“As we will generally be working away from the actual motorway, you may not see work crews on the road and we are aware there may be some people who will not appreciate the need to slow down. Please do not ignore the signs. They are there for your safety and ours.”
Signs will identify the site entry and changed road layout.
Entrance points are also being established near the project’s Lanes Flat site office off Paremata-Haywards Road (SH58) and Bradeys Road at Pauatahanui and off Paekakariki Hill Road near Battle Hill Farm Forest Park.
