One pipeline & no real contingency plan for what should happen if it is disrupted for any reason.     Go back a few decades & we build a harbour bridge which is inadequate & needs 'clip ons' & then those have problems.    Meanwhile in Sydney a harbour bridge is built properly & which now has provision for a dedicated cycle way & a dedicated pedestrian way & with a rail link.    Wellington airport with its unsafe runway over run areas.     The huge power crisis in Auckland when a cable failed.

 

How Auckland airport does not have a rail or light rail link to the central city.

 

How we buy second hand rail ferries & then are 'surprised' when they have the reliability of a BMC car from the 1970's.

 

How our major airports are routinely affected by fog when in Britain they have had Cat 3 landing systems for decades.      How cycle lanes are a joke in Christchurch & only keep cyclists safe for a 100 meters and then disappear.     How we buy 105 Light Armoured vehicles & then have to rely on either the Australian or U.S. air force to deploy them.    And lets not forget the 100 % pure slogan which is an inconvenient porky!

 


All this adds up to NZ being a First World adjacent country.
