More on Curtis-villes rail line

Further to my earlier story of Curtis-cilles new Rail spur to nowhere in particular.
Not only is the council planning on wasting  $70 million to build a 1.8 kilometre rail spur from Wiri to Manukau but that it is almost $30 million more than originally planned for in 2000.

Manukau mayor Sir Barry Curtis claims that the link is an integral part of the rail system. What planet is Sir Barry on? certainly not Earth. 

Cr Quax accuses the mayor, of “empire building” and lacking judgement on the issue and one would certianly have to agree with him on that.
