NACTional at last has put paid to the folly which was the Waterview tunnel. Well done Steven Joyce.
Not only did Labour fudge the published price and fail to actually allocate one penny of funding for this disastrous waste of money, but Transit failed by a cool billion dollars to accurately cost the project. Who was on the board at the time? Oh yes. That tacky fellow Mike Williams. Of course he would have had nothing to do with the decision to NOT build a six lane motorway in Helen Clark's back yard - would he?
Adolf reckons NACTional should direct Transit to keep bringing recommended options until they have one which resumes Helen Clark's house.
As a gesture of bipartisan reconciliation, the new motorway could be named 'The Clark Highway.'
You can just see where her house used to be - underneath the concrete truck in the lower right quadrant.
