Levin-Wgtn Project Moves Ahead


An engineering and construction alliance for the MacKays to Peka Peka section of the Wellington Northern Corridor Road has been set up as that Levin to Wellington project moves forward.

The purpose of the alliance, according to transport minister Steven Joyce, is to “ensure all parties with an interest in the project are working together from the start to achieve the best results.”

The alliance comprises Beca Planning and Infrastructure, Fletcher Construction, the Higgins Group and the NZ Transport Agency.

He said the establishment of a roading alliance to design and construct the expressway will allow the NZ Transport Agency to overlap project phases and get on with delivering the project much faster. Experience on other projects has shown that the alliance approach allows for the delivery of major projects “with greater speed and innovation.”

The Wellington to Levin Corridor is one of seven initial “Roads of National Significance.”
