Support the East-West Link
The East-West link is a vital roading project required to help meet the needs of a growing Auckland. The area targeted by the East West Link employs approximately 68,000 people, and contributes roughly $4.6 billion a year to Auckland’s economy. Freight movements in the area are expected to double by 2035.
The project will create a further connection between SH1 and SH20, and improve connections to rail and freight hubs in the area.
After a decade of planning and $50 million of investigative spending, you would expect that there was a clear direction on the project. This project has been through a fine toothed procedural process like no other. It is supported by council, iwi, and has been approved by the Environmental Protection Agency’s Board of Inquiry.
We are asking the Government to commit to the funding of an East West Link Road project between the Onehunga-Penrose industrial area and State Highways 1 and 20.
Sign the petition today, and join us as we continue to push the Government to include the project in their plan for Auckland.
