At Eden Park Bed and Breakfast we are totally in favour for increased services to motorists in Auckland. A 700-page Government-ordered study says without the proposed $2.4 million central rail link the city will be crippled by serious congestion and growth of the downtown area will be stunted.
Mayor Len Brown told Radio New Zealand’s Morning Report programme that at some point everyone will have to agree that the work is critical.
“This is an all-agency report delivering the appropriate answers to the minister and to the Government saying that the city rail link … is the answer and is three or four times better than any of the other 45 options that were looked at.”
He said government officials need to realise that Auckland’s transport demands need to be solved if the city is to thrive.
The council has begun planning work for the tunnel even though funding is uncertain.
Lets hope that we will see common sense come to those we elect……..
