Good and Bad News For Wellington

Great news that Peter Jackson has secured the contract to make The Hobbit and its sequel.

Potentially less positive is news that former deputy Mayor Alick Shaw has been put onto the board of the new entity that will be the merger between Transit New Zealand and Land Transport New Zealand. Shaw was not a supporter of Transmission Gully, and will no doubt seek to have the funding that has been earmarked for Transmission Gully diverted to fund the work required on the Ngauranga to Airport project that has just gone out for public comment.
