    The National Government make my blood boil and we have to put up with them for another 2 years, it will be too late to stop the construction by then. What’s the point in having public feedback if the government has already made up its mind about what it wants to do!

    That is just typical:

    Private Public Partnership, means Public get to subsidise private profit and Private means Tolls.

    As this new road is meant to take cars off the trucking routes (trucks will not want to manage the steep inclines of this route) putting in a toll means cars will avoid it.

    Waste of money, loss of environment when traffic volumes are dropping (not static – dropping)

    Why is this government so against rail ? Oh yes silly question.

    I’m not anti roads, but they had all this time to build Transmission Gully – even the yanks offered to build it for nothing back in the 1940′s.

    Now the government has decided to make it a reality, but to do this it will have to fork out as much money as it can to fund the project, though it is currently stretched at its limit with other stuff, and rely on private companies to finance some of the money and we still have to pay for it even when it is completed through the use of tolls. It won’t be completed until 2020. Wee might have a different government by then with different ideals.

    We won’t see the benefits of using the road for some time, at least another decade or so. It’s a bad idea.
