Support the Christchurch to Ashburton Highway Upgrade

In the last fifteen years international tourist numbers have more than doubled, the number of passenger vehicles on the road has swelled, and with a strong local economy more and more trucks are on the road.

The existing road is becoming a handbrake on Canterbury’s growth and Labour has cast doubt over the continuation of the planned project to extend the highway.

We are asking the Government to commit to the funding of the construction of the four-lane State Highway 1 link between Christchurch and Ashburton.
