Will Airport Extension Take Off

The Electra Business Breakfast Kāpiti is delighted to be hosting Steve Sanderson, Chief Executive Officer of Wellington Airport. He will update on the Wellington Airport extension and the broader economic development implications for the Region.

Wednesday 3 May 2017

7.15am to 8.45am

Southward Car Museum

$25 (incl GST) per person

Steve’s address is aligned to follow-on from the March Breakfast speaker where Chris Whelan CEO of WREDA spoke on the work of WREDA and economic development within the Region. That breakfast was followed by a forum meeting Chaired by David Webber of the newly formed Economic Development Leadership Group (EDLG).

To have Steve speak soon after Chris’s delivery and the EDLG forum is good for Kāpiti, especially now the Expressway is open and Transmission Gully and PP2O (and beyond) is preparing for opening in 2020. These significant pieces of infrastructure within our Region will be ‘in our lifetimes’, meaning Kāpiti and Horowhenua are going to be more connected to Wellington and the Airport with the road of national significance. With a potential runway extension, broader economic development opportunities are well and truly open to the Region.
