It was good to catch with the Prime Minister at the opening of the new Quay Street cycleway. Among other things, we spoke about how cycling is only part of his keeping healthy plan.
I talked again with the Transport Minister Simon Bridges too, who I have known for a long time. We’ve previously discussed the Auckland Transport Alignment Project (ATAP) and I thought the Quay Street project is a great model for future funding: Government pays two thirds, Auckland Council just one! (I think he’ll need me to me Mayor for this to continue to happen though.)
