The draft decision from the Environmental Protection Authority of resource consent for Transmission Gully is wonderful news for the Wellington region according to the Wellington Employers' Chamber of Commerce.
"The Chamber has been a major proponent of Transmission Gully right from the outset and today's draft decision is a significant milestone," said Chamber President Richard Stone.
"Transmission Gully is a strategically important route both nationally and regionally. It would improve travelling times to and from the capital and greatly assist Wellington's economic development.
"We look forward to the final decision and hope that construction will be able to commence as soon as possible," Mr Stone concluded.
