- Whakatu Arterial Link Project
The Whakatu Arterial Link provides a very important connection between the growing fields of Hastings, the production facilities of our district and the routes out of the region to our customers across New Zealand and the world. It moves large vehicles from the residential streets in and around the Whakatu residential area, making the streets safer for our people.
