Last week Transport Minister Phil Twyford wrote to Penlink Now chair, Stephen Lyttelton, to say that following advocacy by Labour list MP Marja Lubeck, the Hibiscus and Bays Local Board and Penlink Now, (HM October 1), a four-lane option will now be considered as well as the two-lane option.
Both options will be part of in-depth design analysis and cost estimation work that is due to start in the next few weeks.
That process is expected to take several months.
Both options must fit within the capped $411 million budget that Government has allocated to the project.
