Temporary lanes seem permanent

Tell me when the ‘temporary’ T2 bus lanes along Pakuranga Road will be removed?

Duncan Humphrey, the AMETI Eastern Busway Programme Director, said, “These are temporary essential traffic management measures” to minimise congestion during a construction period as opposed to “permanent changes to the road layout”.

So I hope to see him keeping his word and removing the temporary lanes.

I am sure Mr Humphrey wouldn’t lie to us, would he?

The Eastern Busway is now finished and operational, I drove past the busway only last week and the three people on the bus looked very happy.
