We’ve just received the Manakau newsletter and spotted brief Expressway news
First, a meeting for learning about the Horowhenua District Council plans:
At 4pm on Wednesday 19th December 2018 in the Manakau Hall there will be an opportunity to hear from HDC Council officers about their plans for this region. You will be aware that due to the stress and trauma of the NZTA Expressway plans we did not actively contribute to the Council’s Strategic Plan earlier in the year, and that plan has since caused further stress for those affected.
The future of our community is of interest and concern to us all and the Council has now responded to our concerns and will give us an opportunity to express them and help us understand their ideas and the timeframe for action. The meeting may take an hour and everyone is welcome.
By now you will also know that the chosen route for the Expressway is S6 so it will be an opportunity to learn how the NZTA plans marry up with the HDC’s plans.
And on the Expressway, with an official announcement expected tomorrow:
Some Horowhenua residents have received a letter revealing the route of the Ōtaki to north of Levin expressway.
The preferred route runs closest to State Highway 1 and closest to SH57 further north. On the New Zealand Transport Agency’s maps, the route is a combination of section S6 and N4.
