RRA welcomes NZTA decision not to appeal High Court decision on flyover
"Richard Reid & Associates applaud NZTA's decision not to appeal the High Court's Basin Bridge decision. We also welcome NZTA's acknowledgement that this is the end of the road for the flyover and other options should be investigated.
The only option which offers immediate benefits in the short and long term is our at-grade solution, the Basin Reserve Roundabout Enhancement Option (BRREO). This can be implemented quickly at very low cost and with minimal impact on the heritage area.
NZTA already acknowledges that BRREO displays "significant journey time savings over the do-minimum scenario."
BRREO is also unique in that its transport improvements are integrated with a strong urban vision for the city.
Richard Reid & Associates looks forward to working with NZTA, Wellington City Council and Greater Wellington Regional Council for the benefit of Wellingtonians and the wider Wellington region."
