The NZ Transport Agency has approved NZ$66.2 million in funding for the next phase of the Let’s Get Wellington Moving (LGWM) programme in New Zealand.
The programme seeks to deliver a multimodal transport system that moves people, goods and services with fewer vehicles.
Brett Gliddon, NZ Transport Agency general manager, system design and delivery, says the decision will enable the team to develop an early delivery programme while detailed business cases for “larger and more complex components of the programme can get underway”.
“LGWM has a strong focus on moving more people with fewer vehicles,” he continues. “In a city as geographically constrained as Wellington, this focus reflects the kind of city and region the community have told us they want.”
LGWM will continue to engage with the public throughout the work programme.
