Few residents aware of rampless expressway
Te Horo - much wanted expressway passing them by

A HorizonPoll covering Kapiti District residents has found 63% unware that a new expressway won't have off and on ramps for them to serve the rural settlement of Te Horo.


41 per cent said they accessed State Highway 1 at points between Peka Peka and Otaki.


63 per cent were unaware they would not have the same access on the corresponding stretch of expressway.


57 per cent supported an interchange at Te Horo.


71 per cent supported building the expressway.


The poll was used in submissions at an expressway resoruce consent hearing at Wellington on October 2, 2013.
