This is the third attempt at this program after the first attempt was pretty good, the second prompted a sharp response from me while this third attempt having read it is going to provoke an equally sharp response as it seems NZTA and AT are still not realising that duplicating two Rapid Transit routes (Southern Line and Airport to Botany) is wasting limited resource.


Submissions close October 10.
