The Kapiti Chamber of Commerce welcomes the final decision of the MacKays to Peka Peka

Expressway Board of Inquiry issued today

Taken together with the Transmission Gulley route decision, this is an end to decades of uncertainty and will bring a boost to the whole region. It is the least disruptive of the possible routes through Kapiti. It’s a relief that this stage of the process is over and we look forward to construction starting and the road being finished as soon as possible.

It’s now time for Kapiti to move on from the least three and a half years and focus on shaping our future – this decision will bring increased interest from investors, businesses and governmental bodies in starting or relocating here. There is land available; including in the Clean Technology Business Park, the Kapiti Landing Airport Business Park, and within the planned District Centre.

As a community, we also need to ensure that NZTA are held to the conditions for the construction of the Expressway, and that we get the best possible road that we can with the least impact on people and the environment. It is also critical that the affected parties are dealt with promptly and fairly.
