Get The Gully Going

Posted on 10 Mar 2006

Work on Transmission Gully should begin as soon as possible, says Wellington-based ACT MP Heather Roy.

"Now that the Western Plan Hearing Sub-Committee has reported in favour of building Transmission Gully, Councils and central government should get behind them and begin work as soon as possible", Mrs Roy said.

"Procrastination may be Labour's way of saving money, but it is time for action.  Delayed construction projects rarely decrease in cost.

"Until Transmission Gully is built, Wellington remains without a second main access route in the event of bad weather or a natural disaster.

"The time for political apathy is over.  Wellingtonians know that something needs to be done about road access into the region.  Let's get the Gully going", Mrs Roy said.
