The Government is moving ahead with a second Mt Victoria tunnel for Wellington and light rail running from the central railway station to Island Bay as its "preferred choice".
Upgrades will also be made to improve traffic flow at the Basin Reserve.
The package is estimated to cost $7.4 billion.
A second Mt Victoria tunnel will have two lanes for vehicles and two lanes for public transport. The existing tunnel will be transformed into one for walking and cycling.
