More time to have a say on Link Road

People affected by the proposed Petone-Grenada link road have been given three more weeks to submit to the New Zealand Transport Agency.

The agency has received more than 100 submissions about the road, but said affected residents needed more time.
Submissions will now close on April 17.

The proposed road will cut travel time between the Hutt Valley and Porirua, take traffic off the dangerous Haywards Hill road and provide an alternative route to Ngauranga Gorge.

However, the link road would also mean demolition of some homes, would run over some currently empty sections and split some properties in two along the route.
Once all submissions are collected, NZTA will report on the feedback and make decision about the road at the end of this year.
