Like gold mining, the Clyde Dam, agriculture and viticulture, this project would create change in Central Otago.
It would better connect local businesses to the world, generate work opportunities and extend Central Otago’s visitor pipelines.
More jobs in Central Otago would result in shorter travel times and more time spent with family and friends. Our project would create opportunities to attract new residents to the region and give others new reasons to stay.
We recognise the impacts are of concern to some so we have made respectfully engaging with Central Otago communities and other key stakeholders a priority.
By engaging before our plans are created, we will be able to design the project to maximise benefits and minimise impacts on both people and the environment.
