UF Auckland MPs call for respect for roading process
United Future's two Auckland MPs are calling for nay-sayers on Auckland's Eastern Corridor roading proposal to respect the process and look passed self-interest.
"And yes, that is a big ask, but this is a big issue and hugely important for the future of Auckland and New Zealand, in both social and economic terms," Bernie Ogilvy and Paul Adams said today.
Transport consultants yesterday nominated a preferred route for most of a 27km eastern loop expressway for cars, trucks and buses from Manukau to central Auckland.
It is estimated to cost as much as $2.8 billion to $3.8 billion, and as many as 1200 homes could be bulldozed or affected to some degree. "There is a process in place and the greater good here is that that be respected and worked through with all voices and all views considered," the pair said.
United Future has pushed strongly for the fixing of
Auckland's roading woes.
