What do you think of a new report favouring Manukau Harbour over Northport?

Denise Piper Reporter from Whangarei Leader

A new report on the Ports of Auckland favours a new port being built at Manukau Harbour, rather than moving the freight to Northport. The report, which says Manukau will cost less and have less environmental impact, has been criticised by Wayne Brown, whose own report recommended a move north. What do you think?

The cost of the floods on July 17 and 18 is more than $17.6m for damaged roads and state highways, damaged schools, slips on walkways, broken pipes etc. But this does not include private insurance claims for damaged houses, vehicles, businesses and farms. Was your place flooded? If so, how is the clean-up going?
