CRL– a Huge Business Opportunity and a Busy Arena of Politics
July 30, 2013 3 Comments
CRL–a $2.8 billion project, largest in NZ’s history with the potential to double the cost, is of cause a huge business opportunity. It has to be a place for people to chase their commercial goals.
At the same time if you check all NZ political party’s transport policy nearly every party support building CRL even National has a U turn from opposing to supporting.
Why is this? Because people in the central Auckland city, where we have the densest population in this country, as well as 64% of people around the city desperately want CRL to be built with the hope of getting rid of the traffic congestion. Who could afford to lose such number of voters’ support in next general election?
Whether it is right or wrong does not matter anymore though 75% of Aucklanders want an integrated network instead of CRL.
