Transmission Gully will provide significant benefits for people and freight and offer more ways to use the transport network. It’s also going to change the way that the transport network operates, which is why we are preparing now for those changes. We’re working with our Council partners to provide people with important information so that they can make informed, safe and efficient journeys. We’re also making changes to the existing state highway to help make your journeys safer and more reliable.
The new motorway through Transmission Gully will improve the resilience and safety of the state highway network.
We know that it’ll also change how the wider transport network operates, so we are working to prepare the network, and everyone who uses it, for those changes.
This piece of work is called the Wellington Network Operational Readiness (WNOR) programme, and will improve safety and efficiency for people using the transport network. It includes preparing people for what the changes will mean for their journeys, and making changes to the transport network to improve safety and efficiency.
