Opposition To Basin Reserve Grade Separation

According to Morning Report there is a campaign being launched to aopposed the $33 million grade separation near the Basin Reserve.  This is one of the priority roading projects in the Wellington area and is designed to end traffic congestion at the Basin reserve bottleneck.  By doing this we should be able to survive without a second tunnel for some years.  The Chamber is strongly supportive of this project.  A hige proportion of Wellington business support this project.  Unfortunately on Morning Report all the reporting and comment seemed to be from those opposing the flyover.

I shall post in more detail on this when i have the time.

Update 26/11/08: I am informed that John Morrison was interviewed on Morning Report yesterday about this issue and did put the case for the grade separation.  A pity this did not make the news summaries.
