I’m with Jacinda on this one

The Herald reports:

Jacinda Ardern says she doesn’t support a new proposal by Ports of Auckland that would extend Bledisloe Wharf into the Waitemata Harbour.

Speaking after her first meeting as Prime Minister with Auckland Mayor Phil Goff, Ardern was asked about the port company’s draft 30-year masterplan for the 77ha of land it owns on the city’s doorstep.

“What I’m happy to say is that I have always opposed port expansion at its current site,” she said.

That was in reference to plans for a 13m piled concrete extension at the end of Bledisloe Wharf, which the company says is essential for a new berth and the success of the other wharf projects.

On this issue I agree with the PM.
