$120 million for a business case is obscene

Stuff reports:

The next phase of the Let’s Get Wellington Moving project – a detailed case involving no construction – will cost more than $120 million.

I’m all for cases. You should definitely do one for major (and minor) projects. And they will cost in the millions for large projects.

But $120 million is an obscene amount for a case. Let’s say you pay $2,000 a day for consultants. That is 60,000 days of consultants. That would be 240 consultants working every workday for 12 months to cost $120 million.

And taxpayers and ratepayers will be funding it.
