Dunne: Nats come through on UF Transmission Gully PPP plan
UnitedFuture leader and Ōhariu MP Peter Dunne has welcomed Cabinet’s support for Transmission Gully to be financed and built by way of a public-private partnership.
“A PPP for Transmission Gully was a key plank of our 2011 Confidence and Supply with National and we are delighted to be able to tick that achievement off,” Mr Dunne said.
“UnitedFuture has fought tooth and nail over a long period of time for Transmission Gully; in fact getting this road to reality has been a key plank in the three confidence and supply agreements we have negotiated since 2005.”
“Regardless of its flavour, each subsequent government has been committed to progress Transmission Gully due to the dogged perseverance of UnitedFuture.”
“That commitment is something I am very proud of, and the people of Wellington and the lower North Island will benefit from this road in the not too distant future,” he said.
