West Coast: Provincial Growth Fund kickstart for ports, rail, town

On: 20 July 2018

Today, Government announced additional Provincial Growth Fund (PGF) investment in the West Coast to support four feasibility studies which have the potential to generate significant benefits for the West Coast economy.

These proposals would boost tourism, increase transport resilience and generate employment opportunities.

The feasibility studies will allow the region to investigate the viability of upgrades to both Westport and Greymouth Ports, develop a master plan for Greymouth and help KiwiRail explore options for a scenic rail service between Hokitika and Westport.
