Miss­ing link

Central Leader - - LETTERS -

The lat­est report on the pro­posed city un­der­ground rail link con­firms what most Auck­lan­ders al­ready know – the city needs it.

Any­one who has been to Lon­don or any other ma­jor city will have seen un­der­ground rail­ways and how well they work – and how well they are used.

A re­cent study con­ducted by the Auck­land Coun­cil on the world’s most live­able cities men­tioned how all fea­tured un­der­ground rail­ways, along with mod­ern light rail trams in their streets.

The city un­der­ground rail link needs to be started now, to­gether with ex­pand­ing the Wyn­yard Quar­ter tramway into a light rail sys­tem run­ning the length of the waterfront to St He­liers, as well as up Queen St and along Do­min­ion Rd to Lyn­field.

Auck­land needs a mod­ern elec­tric rail and tram sys­tem in or­der to have a clean, quiet and sus­tain­able trans­port sys­tem that is not re­liant on oil and can han­dle the num­bers to cope with Auck­land’s pop­u­la­tion growth. vol­un­teers who help and sup­port in the back­ground en­abling our vol­un­teers to con­trib­ute as they do.

We wish your read­ers, your publi­ca­tion and all our mem­bers the very best for Christ­mas, and thank you for your con­tin­ued sup­port of St John.
