Waterview Connection Project Expo Planned

|

Residents affected by the Waterview Connection project including widening of the Northwestern motorway [State Highway 16] from St Lukes to Te Atatu will get a chance to find out more at project expo planned for next week.

Residents affected by the Waterview Connection project including widening of the Northwestern motorway [State Highway 16] from St Lukes to Te Atatu will get a chance to find out more at project expo planned for next week.

Information on the whole project will be available at the expo, which will be held at each of three locations within the project area - Owairaka, Pt Chevalier and Te Atatu - on different days.

The NZ Transport Agency’s Regional Director for Auckland, Wayne McDonald, said as well as location-based information, the expo would include issue-specific seminars for people who want more detail on matters of interest to them. The seminars will cover a range of topics including noise, air quality, urban design, environmental and construction effects.

The project expo and associated seminars will relate to the completion of SH20 from Sandringham to the Northwestern Motorway and the widening work on the Northwestern Motorway from St Lukes to Te Atatu. The project is part of the development of the Western Ring Route. 

Residents in these areas will be able to get information on what is happening in their location and provide NZTA with feedback on some of the design proposals.

Mr McDonald said the expo was part of the NZTA’s commitment to consult with communities to enable them to have input into the projects.

“Their comments will be vital for NZTA to feed into final documentation for the process to obtain planning approvals. The NZTA is applying to the Environmental Protection Agency [EPA] to use the new national consenting procedures, and anticipates the EPA notifying the project and calling for public submissions mid-year,” Mr McDonald added. 

The expo will first be held on Thursday, 4 March, at the Te Atatu Community Centre from 3.30pm to 9pm, and the second on Saturday, 6 March, at Pasadena Intermediate in Pt Chevalier from 10am to 5pm. The last venue will be Owairaka Primary School on Saturday 13 March from 10am until 5pm,

Venues and times are being advertised in community papers and radio and on the NZTA project website. The seminars times will also be advertised so people can choose which they attend.
