Let’s Talk About Manukau
On the All About Auckland Show on Monday (I think it was the Monday just gone – the email isn’t 100% clear when it arrives on a Wednesday) I was with Transport Blog’s Patrick talking transport in light of the budget constraints facing Auckland Transport. Next Monday I am back on the show this time with Manukau Ward Councillor Alf Filipiana talking The Southern Initiative.
Followers of the blog will know I have not been the biggest “fan” of The Southern Initiative with a presentation given to the Auckland Development Committee last November being scathing of the Initiative.
That said I joined Councillor Filipiana talking about The Southern Initiative and its (brighter) future as well as over projects happening in South Auckland.
Looking at the promo piece from All About Auckland about The Southern Initiative talk:
The discussion was good and frank with it concluding the future for both Manukau and wider Auckland is on the up and up. Remember South Auckland is the rising jewel of Auckland’s Crown something both Alf and I are very proud of. Once the link for the show comes up I will provide it in the blog.
