I was with the PM, and Hon Steven Joyce, at the announcement that the CRL will be fast-tracked for Auckland.

While this project is about better rail connections, with Auckland growing by a predicted 700,000 people over the next 30 years, we need to ensure that our public transport system, whether it be rail, buses, ferries, walkways or cycleways, are able to accommodate that growth.  It’s also about creating jobs and giving certainty to Auckland business, which is great news for the future of our city.
