Seaport Scene Issue 321

Clifford Bay Proposal Takes the Next Step

“Cabinet believes the business case we’ve been presented is strong enough to justify further testing the viability of this major change to New Zealand’s transport infrastructure,” Transport Minister Gerry Brownlee said, of the proposal to build a ferry terminal at Clifford Bay.

Although estimates on the cost of development have increased significantly to $422 million the Government wants to further test the viability and Mr. Browlee says, “I have asked the Ministry of Transport, along with the Treasury and the NZ Transport Agency to assemble a specialist project team to undertake this work.

“This group of officials and private sector experts will continue working through the complexities that are part and parcel of the business case and report back to the Government by the end of April next year.

“I expect that assumptions in the business case will be rigorously tested with key stakeholders.” your copy of the seaport scene to read the full story.
