Time for NZTA to work on alternatives to flyover
The High Court decision rejecting the New Zealand Transport Agency’s attempts to build the Basin Reserve flyover must now mean that NZTA finally works with the community on other options for transport solutions in Wellington, Grant Robertson and Annette King Labour’s Wellington MPs say.
“We welcome the Court decision. The exhaustive Board of Inquiry process rejected the flyover because the costs simply did not match the benefits. NZTA has only itself to blame for being in this position. They have failed to look properly at other options that would not have had the effect of seriously compromising the environment and heritage of our city as the flyover would have, “Grant Robertson says.
