Last week National Party Leader Judith Collins announced a Transport Package for the Upper North Island. It would include building a four-lane expressway from Whangarei to Tauranga, completing Auckland’s Rapid Transit network and building a second crossing across the Waitemataa Harbour. It is projected to cost $17 of the 31 billion dollars the party would allocate to transport projects in the next decade if elected. 

Labour’s Finance Spokesperson Grant Robertson was quick to attack the proposal, saying the costing is either inaccurate, or completely lacking for some projects. Yesterday on the Wire, Jemima spoke to Julie Anne Genter from the Green Party about the issue, who also echoed some of these concerns. 

Today Bronwyn spoke to National's Transport and Infrastructure Spokesman Chris Bishop to get his thoughts on these comments, as well as a better understanding of what the proposal entails.
