Response to Michael Barnett’s Wellington transport article on ScoopPosted: March 12, 2017
Informative and inspired analysis of NZTA again, Michael. Thanks. But you still don’t address the public support for the roading program and air travel. While Wellington City has a reasonably progressive attitude toward transport, the suburbs see the City primarily as a barrier to getting to the airport. Why support for more roads and air travel is so irrational, even desperate, is a question that must be addressed if we are to have the right discussions and do the right thing to sort out transport.
