Central Leader - - Letters -

I share the dis­ap­point­ment ex­pressed by com­mu­nity stake­hold­ers (Tun­nel op­tion put on hold, Cen­tral Leader, Fe­bru­ary 4) at the news of the Waterview SH20 tun­nel op­tion re­view.

Com­mu­nity con­sul­ta­tion and pub­lic meet­ings over many years pro­duced an ac­cept­able so­lu­tion to traf­fic con­ges­tion along­side pro­tect­ing ex­ist­ing hous­ing and green space in our area.

The bud­get blowout is based on an as­sump­tion that a three­lane tun­nel would be bet­ter than the orig­i­nal two-lane tun­nel pro­posal, so it is like com­par­ing chalk with cheese.

In­stead of af­ford­able progress, we are of­fered de­lays and un­cer­tainty. CATHER­INE FARMER

The name Eden Park will have lit­tle mean­ing if there is a grow­ing fi­nan­cial gap to­wards the cup se­ries start.

Truly, sen­ti­ment will have lit­tle to do with the fu­ture.

See­ing the smart, new, ris­ing col­umns says to me that the mish-mash of pre­vi­ous, ugly, small stands’ days are truly over.

Wel­come to the real world, rugby and cricket stal­warts to­gether. DR PETER BOYS
