Building the Northern Link Road in New Zealand will cut the travel distance between Karamea and Nelson. The proposed route will reduce the distance from 328km at present to 169km. This project evaluation comes from consultancy company BECA. Meanwhile the project has an expected cost of US$219.4 million - $658.2 million ((NZ$300 million – NZ$900 million). The report from BECA says that the proposed route would cut congestion on the existing Buller Gorge road.
