Leighton Smith on Newstalk ZB kicked off the week with an impromptu mayoral debate on whether the port of Auckland should be moved.
This came from a survey published by MYOB which had a surprisingly close result: 39% vote for a port move, 30% vote against a move, 32% wouldn’t make a difference.
Any need to move the port is decades away, which is handy because it will take decades to make it happen.
I think we have more urgent port-related priorities around transport and improving how the port relates to Auckland.
