The Government’s recent announcement of infrastructure funding has given Selwyn a few “crumbs”, according to Selwyn MP Amy Adams.

“While I am relieved that the New Zealand Transport Agency (NZTA) has finally confirmed funding for some projects that I have been advocating for over the past few years, I am disappointed that our region is receiving a very small slice of the pie compared to other regions such as Auckland which has been allocated billions,” Ms Adams said.

“I know that local residents will welcome the news that NZTA has finally committed to carrying out desperately-needed safety improvements at the intersection of SH73 and Weedons Ross Rd in West Melton, but may be frustrated that work will not start on these until 2021,” Ms Adams said.

“While I also welcome the announcement of upgrades to a number of intersections along State Highway 1 (SH1) between Burnham and Rolleston, these represent only a fraction of what is needed,” Ms Adams said.
