    Abstract Wellington Regional Council and Transit New Zealand have been seeking
    a suitable solution to the increasing problems of congestion, safety and
    community severance along the existing State Highway 1 route.

    A possible solution to these problems is the construction of the
    Transmission Gully roading project, a 27km inland route. At present
    Transmission Gully cannot be built using national funds, as insufficient
    benefits would accrue from the route to justify the amount of money it
    would cost to build.

    The Wellington Regional Council and Transit New Zealand want to find
    out whether the Wellington regional community is willing to contribute
    some or all of the funds necessary for the early construction of the
    Transmission Gully roading project.

    McDermott Miller Limited was commissioned to undertake a household
    survey of the Wellington regional community to gauge:

    - support for the early construction of Transmission Gully;
    - support for the form of regional tax the community would most prefer to
    pay for Transmission Gully’s early construction;
    - overall support of early construction of Transmission Gully paid for by the
    Wellington regional community; and,
    - likely use of Transmission Gully as a free or toll road.
