I dont disagree. Forget Twyford. It isn't at Govt as it hasn't been decided who will build or fund it. Lets say there are say 3 options, forget what Twyford says, there are 3 options. No matter what these are, Light Rail is over, that's my point. So, if and when it goes to Government to decide what to do, its already ended.They may as well shelve it now, and revisit if they succeed in the election and if they go with NZF, throw it out. And let Peters arrange AKL rail transport himself as thats where it seems to have ended up
Tough pill to swallow for the parts of Auckland with no rapid transit that have been a holding pattern for years waiting for something, anything to happen.
But you're right, Light Rail is dead, as much as I wanted it to work out and be built quickly.
So, assuming NZF is again the Kingmaker, Light Rail will never happen. Where does Peters dream of heavy rail fit in? I assume its not for rapid transit, whats his plan to solve that issue? Unless whoever coalitions with him takes that off the table or NZF is not needed. Given the election is soon, and there is a dire need for employment and infrastructure is a big part of that, you would have to beleive that rapid transit in AKL, in whatever form is at the top of the list for whoever wins in Sept
