We must double the Mt Vic tunnel without delay

Wellington needs a second Mt Victoria tunnel to get traffic moving. The traffic chokepoint at the Basin Reserve needs a sensible solution now rather than more years of uncertainty. A second tunnel has been identified as key to unlocking congestion on SH1 alongside planned improvements for cyclists, pedestrians and public transport users. 

The Labour-led Government has delayed construction of the second tunnel until at least 2030, after completion of a mass transit system. This is despite officials warning that a second tunnel is needed to help alleviate the increased congestion that construction of mass transit will cause.

Wellington can’t afford another decade of delay on transport. Construction of a second Mt Vic tunnel needs to be brought forward as part of a sensible, balanced plan to get our capital city moving.
