FAST TRAIN TO AUCKLAND - This is the next step - 160Km/h

#FASTRAIL BETWEEN #HAMILTON AND #AUCKLAND IS JUST A MATTER OF TIME - One hour to Britomart Station (NZ Herald) - I suspect something similar to the train in the picture

A business case will test the feasibility of a train that could complete the 125km trip in half the current time.
It Transport Minister Phil Twyford said Cabinet approved an investigation to the viability of a rapid rail connection getting between the two cities.
The study is expected to be completed next year.
Twyford said it would look at "160km/h, modern tilt trains that would connect Hamilton with Auckland's downtown Britomart station in an hour".
"That would effectively unite these two incredibly important labour markets, opening up the growth potential in both places and that could have huge spinoffs.
"My hope is that we can work steadily towards that in the next few years."
Twyford said until the business case and costings were complete, he would not put a timeframe on it.
He said a regular train commuter service between Hamilton and Auckland, due to start in the middle of next year, was an important starting point in improving the link between the two cities.

Yesterday I saw an election billboard put up by Angela Oleary who is standing for Mayor in the upcoming council elections.
It has a statement on it "No more dodgy deals".
What are these "Dodgy Deals" she is referring to?
Why is she bringing this up now? She has been on the council since forever and hasn't bought the matter to anyone's attention before that I have seen.
If "Dodgy deals" were being done in the past then, as a Councillor, it was her place to make people aware of them or she is complicit in those "Dodgy deals".
Doesn't say much for what she would be like as our Mayor does it?
