Wellington Scoop

Celia, Julie Anne, Sue, Iona and others to speak on transport vision for Wellington

News from Green Party
With the Local Body Elections just around the corner, do you want to know more about the Green candidates’ transport vision for Wellington?

While the Government is trying to push through uneconomic and unpopular projects like the Flyover and the Kapiti Expressway, the Greens have a transport plan for Wellington that complements its high public transport patronage and compact urban design such as Light Rail.

The Green Party supports a high quality public transport solution for Wellington that will reduce carbon emissions and deliver a people-friendly urban environment.

Join Julie Anne Genter MP and special guests Mayor Celia Wade-Brown, Ralph Chapman (Victoria University), Paul Young (Generation Zero), James Burgess (Cycle Aware Wellington) Gareth Hughes MP, Paul Bruce, Sue Kedgley, Iona Pannett and more to present a smart, green transport vision for Wellington.

    Feels like a bit of déjà vu. I seem to recall Celia and the Greens’ platform at the last elections was light rail, and then came the transport study that found light rail to be a pipe dream. This is confusing but feels like flogging a dead horse rather than engaging in what can really be done for all Wellingtonians.
