We had an interesting conversation in the office here this afternoon re whether 100mil. represented good value.  The consensus (with me the sole dissenter) was that even 200mil whould represent good value and that it would actually be used by a significant number of people to commute.  Let's just say its been a while since such a proper reaming was had in the office on any topic!

 

Just goes to show wtf dik!

haha, that's mildly amusing scottie.

 

I'm clearly in a massive minority here, I ride a bike when I can and I own a boat.  I currently ride around through Greenhithe to get to my work.  It's 40km and an hour 45 each way, it's the best part of my day.  Even when the sky path goes in I'll still ride around the long way.  Obviously most people aren't as silly as me and I get that.

 

Was just thinking about the cost. 

 

Lets say NZTA binned the sky path and you could spend that money elsewhere.

 

How would you spend it?  (must be roading related given that wad of cash is in the transport bucket)

 

100 meters of new motorway?  

 

Remember - You're not stuck in traffic, you are traffic!   ;-)

there's a lot of people using the boardwalk around westhaven

 

great that they'll have somewhere to continue their exercise too

 

and that it won't cost them any more than a bridge destroying max heavy truck

 

when i lived in sydney would often walk from kings cross area to north sydney over the bridge

How much m.way would you get for $100M HT?

 

I reckon you'd get about a km, maybe 2.  The east/west link the previous 4 way coalition wanted to build through Onehunga was $372M per km.

 

I'll try and find the link but I read a really interesting series of stats on car use as primary mode of transport to get to work, Auckland was at 84% I think, lower than Detroit, but pretty much the same as most American cities.  Osaka was down at 18%.  It's clear we don't need more roads, we just need to change the way we move around.
