Manawatū Gorge alternative route short-list options

The New Zealand Transport Agency is fast tracking a business case to look at options for a Manawatū Gorge alternative route

State Highway 3 through the Manawatū Gorge has been closed since slips caused damage on 24 April 2017. Continued instability at the slip and other sites is hampering efforts to make the road safe.

Following on from the previous consultation on the 13 long-list options assessed in September, New Zealand Transport Agency are now consulting on 4 short-list options, before recommending an option to go to the Board in December 2017. Users are able to click on the options to read more and have their say by answering surveys as well as dragging and dropping comments.
