The National Govt has decided to push a part-overground, part cut and cover motorway through South Auckland.
The route goes through a few hundred houses and some 'greenspace' parklands.
It appears that much of the 'parklands' is there because it is on the route of what was originally planned as a rail extention.
Apart from the folly of more motorways in this day and age, isnt there some imorality in assuming land supposed to be for rail?
But not to worry, the place will be improved:
Ms Lee, a list MP and National's candidate in the June 13 Mt Albert by-election, made the comment at a candidates' meeting last night........Ms Lee told the meeting people drove to the electorate from south Auckland, and that the new motorway extension could divert some of that traffic and criminals from Mt Albert.
