PLAN SHORT-SIGHTED

The Tribune (NZ) - - CONVERSATIONS -

To­day (July 20) I re­ceived my copy of The Tri­bune in which is an ar­ti­cle on the pro­posed new bridge. This plan dis­plays ma­jor lack of vi­sion. Based on the de­vel­op­ment of sub­di­vi­sions in our city there will in­evitably be an in­crease in traf­fic, this plan to which I’ve re­ferred it a cy­cle and foot bridge only! This makes no pro­vi­sion for the other needs of our grow­ing city, this I con­sider as be­ing very short-sighted, spend­ing this amount of money for no ma­jor long-run ben­e­fit.

If I have the op­por­tu­nity to vote on this is­sue it will be a ‘NO’.
