Aucklanders want a second harbour crossing

The Herald reports:

A strong majority of Aucklanders support a combined road and rail tunnel for a new harbour crossing, according to a NZ Herald-Kantar Vote 2020 poll.

In the poll, there is overwhelming support nationwide for a new tunnel to augment the Auckland Harbour Bridge with 58 per cent of voters calling for a combined road and rail tunnel and 12 per cent wanting a light rail only tunnel.

Yet Labour won’t commit to a second crossing that incudes vehicles. National has promised construction would begin in 2028. Labour is saying they may do a 2nd crossing at some stage in the 2030s, but it might eb for light rail only.
