    Wellingtonians have jumped at the opportunity to ride Transmission Gully

    Wellingtonians have jumped at the opportunity to ride Transmission Gully


    The 1.25 billion dollar motorway north of Wellington has been open for a week after years of delays and budget blowouts.

    It's reportedly made a huge difference coming in and out of the Wellington region.

    Porirua mayor Anita Baker says it's significantly reduced traffic along the old State Highway 1 route.

    She says it's much quieter in Pukerua Bay and Paremata.

    Baker says Pauatahanui and Whitby have picked up a bit of traffic -- but that it's still flowing very well.
