The Mt Vic tunnel, a long road to nowhere

Nicholas Boyack Reporter from Community News

Politicians have been been talking about a second Mt Victoria tunnel since the 1950s.
A second tunnel is a key component in Lets Gets Wellington Moving, although progress on that is at a snail's pace.
This week the Green Party came up with a new idea - two new additional tunnels. The Greens would not block the proposed car tunnel but would like to see two more built.
One would be a dedicated walking and cycling tunnel parallel to the existing Mt Victoria car tunnel, the second would be a light rail tunnel in Newtown, near Wellington Zoo.

What do you think?

Way Back Wednesday

Hey Neighbourly folk, can you work out who this is and where the picture was taken. The only hint I will give is that it was 1909.
