It was satisfying to see the cover report in Cook Strait News on some down to earth common sense (Wellingtonians for Non-Ridiculous Transport, 23 Nov). The Regional Council’s openly contradictory rationale of promoting electric transport and adding diesel buses to replace electric trolleys is truly ‘ridiculous’!
The response elicited from Wellington Mayor Lester was informative. Given the openly aggressive irrationality of the Regional Council on this issue it is notable that the Mayor has refused to challenge that ‘rationale ridiculous’ with the non-ridiculous action of holding onto the trolley wires which the WCC owns. The claim of it being too costly is just an excuse as the removal of the wires would be a comparably expensive exercise.
