KEY PRO­POS­ALS IN THE LAND TRANS­PORT STRAT­EGY:

South Waikato News - - OPINION -

Road safety has been el­e­vated in im­por­tance. State high­ways one and 29 will be the high pri­or­ity strate­gic freight cor­ri­dors to Tau­ranga’s port. The routes along state high­ways two and 27 and state high­way two through the Karanga­hake Gorge to the port will not be sup­ported as freight cor­ri­dors once the ex­press­way is com­pleted. An in­ter­modal freight shift from road to rail is strongly sup­ported in the RLTS. A strong push to ex­tend the Waikato Ex­press­way from just south of Cam­bridge to the in­ter­sec­tion of state high­ways one and 29 at Piarere.
