Highway 29

There has been some interesting, low volume noise over a proposed plan to link Hamilton with Tauranga using a 4-lane highway, via a tunnel through the Kaimai Ranges.

Immediately I thought this is an excellent idea, because Tainui Holdings have recently sought Resource Consent for their Inland Port project at Ruakura  Put that project in mind along with the Highway 29 link makes perfect economic and social sense. Who wants to go to the beach in half the time it takes now? I do! Tourism is also on that chart too. Jobs would most certainly expand.

I will keep you posted on this, as I research a bit more – but as a UnitedFuture candidate, I would support such a project if it could be done soon rather than later.

    The port of Tauranga is also a good reason for this… but you will meet resistance and possibly uproar from port of Auckland and environmental groups.

      Hi Michelle,
      I do appreciate your concern
      the Hamilton to Tauranga Highway project through a tunnel from our end to Bay of Plenty is an exciting project that’s currently not scheduled.
      But… I fully support such a project because it is innovative and will create jobs….
