    Before NZTA takes its plans for a concrete jungle further, I wonder what the answer would be if NZTA asked the school kids—the up and coming Wellington citizens of the next 10 to 20 years—whether they think a flyover and motorway are the best transport legacy their city might leave them? 4,585 students attend school in the Basin Reserve area: 3,900 high school students [ Wellington College, Wellington High School, Wellington East Girls] and 685 young pupils [Clyde Quay, Mt Cook, St Marks Church School].
    Why shouldn’t schools and the school kids be given a voice? They are “affected parties” now, in the path of the motorway.

    Listening to Councillor Pannett at the meeting, it became clear that democracy in NZ was somehow diverted to suit the Government. (by way of several law changes). She clearly explained that the way to fight this flyover was to hire very clever and expensive lawyers. And in the end Kent Duston was asking for donations to achieve this.
    Wrong move!! We should organise a campaign to expose all parties involved as to where their true “alliances” really are. Transparency should be the name of the game. We should have independent bodies looking into the various options.

    Ferdinand is probably correct, gathering $100.000 0r so to fight in the Environmental Protection Authority with Kerry Prendergast as chair would be throwing hard earned money down the ……………
    We have to have a public campaign to expose the ‘pork barrel politics’ involved and make such a structure impossible to build.
    Grey haired bodies at the barriers this time around !!!!
