Councillor Chris Darby has come out in support of North Shore rail, in this opinion piece for the Herald. He’s the only Auckland City councillor so far to do so.
Rail to the Shore formed part of the original 1950s plan for the Auckland Harbour Bridge. Sixty years later, a government is on the verge of missing the opportunity again. The current plan risks wasting billions on a road-only second harbour crossing, and neglects to seriously analyse the possibility of a rail tunnel. Now is the time to look to the North with rail in mind.
We couldn’t agree more Councillor. Let’s hope your fellow councillors take note.
