Transmission Gully Process Delay


When Waterview residents wanted more time to absorb the complexity involved in submissions, they were denied any extension.

Today NZTA extended the time for public consultation for the MacKays to Peka Peka expressway “to enable the proposals to be further refined.”

Amid residents’ concerns about the impact on properties, NZTA Central Regional Director Jenny Chetwynd puts it this way:“We’ve rescheduled the consultation to ensure that the proposals we present to the public reflect the best possible options that provide the greatest certainty for property owners and the wider community.  “By getting it right early in the process we’ll save ourselves and the community time and uncertainty further down the track.

“NZTA will consider extending the planned six week consultation period to ensure that everyone has an opportunity to consider the proposals and provide feedback.”

NZTA will announce the new timeline for consultation next week.

    Waterview was only four weeks to start with…

    the McKays Peka-Peka expressway is actually not Transmission Gully, but is the proposed connecting road to the north of Transmission Gully. It will bypass Paraparaumu and Waikanae, however will cut these two towns in half by doing so.
    If you search for Kapiti Road, Paraparaumu you will clearly see the reserved corridor.
