The Team Reporter from Stuff

Hi neighbours,

Light rail proposed for Lower Hutt

Nicholas Boyack Reporter from Community News

The Green Party wants to see light rail in Lower Hutt.

The Greens’ transport policy backs the introduction of light rail between Wellington City, and the eastern and southern suburbs which they say would reduce congestion and emissions. It also includes extending it to Lower Hutt, making it possible to catch a light rail all the way from central Hutt to the airport.

Light rail could utilise the existing train network’s track gauge but Labour has already said it will not happen under its watch.
What do you think?
