On the 28th of December 2019 at 2.30pm the queue of cars, nose-to-tail, stretched from Cambridge Rd intersection with Highway 29 at Tauriko back to Ruahihi Rd. If one car is delayed for one hour then 500 cars is 500 hours. What a waste of productivity time.
Labour Government withdrew all road money from the NZTA two years ago.
This is not just a one-off. Traffic continually banks up, mainly morning and late afternoon and also on holidays and nothing is being done to fix it. A few pegs are put in.
It is election year now and Labour is throwing money at roading which is too little, too late. If you want the roads upgraded, don’t vote Labour.
