Prime Minister John Key has promised a national cycleway to solve the country’s economic woes. I intend to keep you informed of exactly how the cycleway is progressing. Yes, never fear, Eddie will dig out all the dirty details: how far the cycleway’s progressed, how many jobs it’s created, and how much it’s cost.
This cycleway is the answer to our economic woes and all Kiwis need to know the ins and outs. So I’m committed to keeping you informed on a fortnightly basis.
It would be 3000km to build a cycleway the whole length of New Zealand but there are already some tracks to link up and looks like they’re going to miss other bits. Let’s be generous and call the target 1500km. For fairness sake I don’t think we should start the time count from the date of job summit. I mean, Mr Key hadn’t even worked out the details yet. So let’s start the count now!
Time: 1 day
Jobs created: 0
Built (km): 0 out of 1500
Cost thus far: $0
Govt estimated cost: $50m
Country status: In recession
