Work underway on mass rapid transit and state highway projects

Work to identify the best options for mass rapid transit and state highway improvements is set to begin, as part of the next phase of the $6.4 billion Let’s Get Wellington Moving (LGWM) programme.

Contracts for the next stage of engineering, design, and planning work on the two largest projects in LGWM have been awarded with business case work to start immediately. The indicative business case for the strategic highway improvements project will identify preferred options for unlocking the Basin Reserve and providing an extra Mt Victoria tunnel, and the mass rapid transit business case will inform decisions about the type of mass rapid transit and the preferred route.
