Think of the Govt., Greens, while stuck in traffic

Media release 24 October 2003

Think of the Government, Greens, while stuck in traffic

If you have trouble getting out of the city this Labour weekend, or find yourself stuck behind slow traffic without a passing lane in sight - remember the Government and the Greens.

Their Land Transport Management Bill, due to become law within the next fortnight, does nothing to improve the state of the roads and will actually result in reduced road funding, as more petrol taxes will get siphoned off towards cycle tracks and rail subsidies.

Business NZ says the Bill should be changed to stop the vast flow of motorists' money away from roads.
