Whoopsy we forgot about traffic management

Mallard and the government whilst busily bullying Aucklanders into the NIHBY Stadium have forgotten that the only egress from a stupid waterfront site is via Quay Street.

Duh! Of course you would now have 60,000 people pouring out towards Qyuay Street with a major road to cross. The only feasible thing to do is to close the road for events. That'll go down like a cup of cold sick.

So despite having over 9 months of study to work out egress from Eden Park, which incidentally can be from all points of the compass the expert in these matters was only given 1 hour to study the effects of a bloddy great stadium on our waterfront. 

[quote]A fundamental requirement would be closing Quay St for rugby cup games and other big events.

"That is essential because it is the only side of the compass you have got to get everybody out of the stadium, so you can't have a live road there."

The question of where Quay St's regular traffic would go was "a biggie".[/quote]

As much at home writing editorials as being the subject of them, Cam has won awards, including the Canon Media Award for his work on the Len Brown/Bevan Chuang story.  And when he’s not creating the news, he tends to be in it, with protagonists using the courts, media and social media to deliver financial as well as death threats.

They say that news is something that someone, somewhere, wants kept quiet.   Cam Slater doesn’t do quiet, and as a result he is a polarising, controversial but highly effective journalist that takes no prisoners.

He is fearless in his pursuit of a story.
