Massive Auckland transport spend-up fails to meet transport funding demands.

As I have said on past occasions,  it is only by looking at the sort of money being spent on public transport infrastructure in Auckland and Wellington that one can really measure just how successful  infrastructure progress in Christchurch has been over the last decade.....

By this token today's NZ Herald has done another expose of the comparative state of public transport infrastructure planning in Christchurch! 

Obviously the case for funding public transport infrastructure of the northern cities IS stronger - but 15 times stronger?? Come Onnnn!**


** Stripping out the public transport projects (and part aspects) only from these figures I get a very conservative figure of $5.1 billion  for Auckland public transport infrastructure and a (very generous?) guestimate of $100 million on Christchurch public transport infrastructure (as per last posting).

Despite (greater) Auckland only being 3.5 x the size of greater Christchurch,  approx  $51 dollars is spent in Auckland on public transport infrastructure for every $1 spent on this in Christchurch; per capita this translates to "only" 15 times more per person on public transport infrastructure!


  1. I have just installed iStripper, and now I enjoy having the best virtual strippers on my taskbar.

  2. It has fully emerged to crown Singapore's southern shores and undoubtedly placed her on the global map of residential landmarks. I still scored the more points than I ever have in a season for GS. I think you would be hard pressed to find somebody with the same consistency I have had over the years so I am happy with that. نقل عفش
