Council wants help for Transmission Gully pest issues

From Morning Report, 7:51 am on 18 December 2023

The Greater Wellington Regional Council is asking the Government for funding to stop pests reaching the capital and endangering native wildlife.

The $1.25 billion Transmission Gully motorway north of Wellington opened last year making it quicker for motorists to reach the city.

But it is also unintentionally providing an easier pathway for pests to move south.
