Work on joining up the Kapiti Expressway to the Transmission Gully motorway is expected to start in about four months.
The New Zealand Transport Agency reports that drainage works continue near Queen Elizabeth Park, in preparation for the first section of road pavement to start.
By early August it’s expected that traffic will be moved over from the existing State Highway 1, onto a new section of Coast Road, to allow contractors to complete works to join the Transmission Gully motorway with the Kapiti Expressway.
NZTA reports that overall good progress is being made on multiple fronts along the new 27-kilometre Transmission Gully motorway, although not much is visible to the public.
Significant earthworks continue, with many parts of the alignment now built up to subgrade level - the final level before road pavement construction begins.
