Transmission Gully New Zealand

Post by deanonzl
The Transmission Gully Motorway (MāoriTe Ara Nui o Te Rangihaeata) is a 27-kilometre-long (17-mile), four-lane motorway north of Wellington, New Zealand. 
Construction began on 8 September 2014 and completion was originally scheduled for April 2020, but contractual negotiations as well as difficulties resulting from the COVID-19 pandemic caused delays.
Built on a earthquake faultline may cause future issues.
The motorway opened 3am to public traffic on 31 March 2022.
This is a major win for Waze NZ, Google & Apple were not ready for the opening, Waze was (of course)
Routing worked correctly.
GMaps was not complete, Apple suggested using the urban area in preference to the new expressway.
Full credit to the area mgr RogueNZL for completing ahead of schedule.
