|SH58 in the Wellington Region.|
One major issue that came up repeatedly was the interchange with SH2 and SH58 at Manor Park. Local residents can't get into the traffic when it's stopped at the lights or when cars and trucks and flying past at 100km/h.
The logical solution to this would be to make Manor Park an interchange, along the lines of the one NZTA has built at Korokoro. This was proposed back in 2007 but never funded.
As Rimutaka's MP I will advocate strongly for this project to proceed. I've previously outlined my view that Hayward's Hill Road (SH58) should be upgraded as a result of Transmission Gully going ahead - it makes sense in that case to build a proper interchange with SH2.
