Frankton to Queenstown - Queenstown Town Centre Masterplan

About the project

The aim of these investigations is to make it easier for people and goods to travel between Frankton and Queenstown and into  (and around) the Queenstown Town Centre.     

The investigations build on the work already done through the Queenstown Town Centre Masterplan.  

Progress so far

The Queenstown Transport Business Case has now been endorsed by QLDC, Waka Kotahi and Otago Regional Council.  

The business case will lead to the delivery of critical transport infrastructure on State Highway 6 and 6A, including bus lanes on SH6 and bus priority on SH6A.  The completion of the business case is a necessary step in unlocking funding for design and delivery.
