Western Corridor Submission
This page has the submission prepared by Porirua City Council on the Western Corridor Transportation Plan, along with the appendices which contain various reports.
We support a comprehensive approach that will provide a win-win solution and set the region on a positive footing for the next 50 to 100 years. The building of Transmission Gully is central to our proposition. The appendices support our contention that an upgrade of the Coastal Route will be the wrong way to go.
