    Transmission Gully highway is part of the 110km Wellington Northern Corridor Road of National Significance.

    Transmission Gully is New Zealand’s first roading project to be procured through a public private partnership.

    The Wellington Gateway Partnership has been engaged to design, construct, finance, operate and maintain the new Transmission Gully highway for 25 years.

    The consortium includes Pacific Partnerships (sponsor and equity investor), CPB Contractors (design and construction), and Ventia, CIMIC Group’s 50% owned associate, (operations and maintenance).

    Scope 

    The 27km four lane Transmission Gully Motorway will address safety and projected capacity concerns on New Zealand’s existing State Highway 1. The design includes 29 bridges and focuses on driver safety and resilience to seismic activity.

    Environmental management is a key priority in the sensitive and steep terrain. When completed, the highway will provide a more efficient connection and support the local economy.

    Transmission Gully is expected to open for traffic by 2020 following a five-year construction period.
