Transmission Gully 'set up to fail', review finds

From Morning Report, 7:26 am on 20 April 2021

A review into Wellington's billion dollar highway Transmission Gully has found the project was flawed from the start.

An interim review into the 27-kilometre highway has found serious flaws at the planning stage of the public-private partnership project, along with a lack of transparency.

The motorway was supposed to cost $850 million, but has now blown out beyond $1.25 billion.

Transport Minister Michael Wood spoke to Susie Ferguson.
