$8 billion of public transport would fix this

Auckland's sprawling motorways – the Labour government wants to spend $8 billion on more of them, plus the odd harbour bridge and tunnel. Is this a government committed to making New Zealand carbon neutral?

And why isn't the Green Party kicking up an absolute stink about this madness? And why haven't Green Party leaders come out in support of free and frequent public transport?

That $8 billion could fund thousands of electric buses carrying people for free for decades. It would transform Auckland into a city to be proud of and drastically reduce this countries' carbon emissions.
