The Herald reports:
A Board of Inquiry has granted consent for the Puhoi to Warkworth motorway north of Auckland, known as the “holiday highway”.
The New Zealand Transport Agency acting highway manager Steve Mutton said the draft decision from the Board of Inquiry was welcomed by NZTA.
“The draft decision is great news and an exciting and important step towards improving transport connections between Auckland and Northland and the rest of the upper North Island,” Mr Mutton said.
That’s great news for all those living in Northland who need better roading infrastructure in and to the region.
