Council urges Government to commit to completion of Ō2NL Expressway:
Horowhenua District Council is alarmed and concerned at media speculation that the Ōtaki to North of Levin (Ō2NL) Expressway is in danger of being scrapped and that the Minister of Transport is unable to confirm commitment to the project. …
“With significant growth in the region, the catalyst for much of that growth has been the knowledge that the roading network between Wellington and Levin would become safer and more efficient. Horowhenua District Mayor, Bernie Wanden says. …
The Horowhenua community is again being placed in a position of uncertainty which is causing significant stress and anxiety to its residents and businesses. The state highway that splits our community is becoming busier by the day, posing increased risk to the safety of the community. …
Horowhenua District Council is in the middle of its Long Term Plan, with much of that planning, whether it be for Infrastructure or the future revitalisation of the Levin Town Centre, revolving around the Expressway being built and operational in 2029.
One thought on “Horowhenua District Council wants Ō2NL Expressway completed”
The about turn about the Otaki to Levin expressway by the Govt is another broken promise.
The current road is nowhere near fit for purpose. it is one of the most dangerous stretch of road in NZ – and it’s part of the country’s No 1 National highway. The new road has to be built NOW before more and more deaths occur.
Any other developed country would have done it years ago.
DO IT NOW!
