There have been several reports recently of appalling traffic congestion round Auckland airport. As usual, too many cars choke themselves to death, highlighting the need for proper public transport (and the lousy job we have so far made of public transport in NZ). Nats to the rescue?
Airport light rail confirmed, but not for 30 years
Auckland will get light rail between the CBD and the airport, it was confirmed today, but it won’t be in place for another 30 years.
No need to go any further. Auckland’s problems are urgent now, a 30 year wait is not a solution.
Seems for this government problems are either “too hard” (getting water exporters to pay for it, the housing crisis, poverty) or the solution is a fantasy promised for decades away (Auckland airport rail, clean water, predator free, fixing superannuation). Useless.
