After big pressure from the community, the government committed to “fully-funding” the new Melling Interchange in January 2020 – but now it is all at risk, AGAIN!
Transport Minister Michael Wood won’t commit to delivering Melling. Construction is due to start in 2022 with funding of $258 million – but the government is considering the “scope, cost and schedule” of its 2020 commitments.
Labour MPs spent thousands on billboards all over the Hutt last year saying Melling was fully-funded and it was a 2020 election promise by Labour.
Sign your name to tell the government to commit to a new Melling Interchange.
A new interchange is critical for the Hutt Valley – it will reduce congestion, increase safety, improve flood protection, and make walking, cycling and taking the train easier.
We need Melling. Now the government needs to agree!
PETITION: TELL THE GOVERNMENT – COMMIT TO MELLING!
