Reasons To Disagree
You would need a very fast and very long train

You wouldn't even need a fast train. It only takes 12 minutes to drive from the north of the North Shore to the city. The North Shore is also a fairly narrow corridor so many more carparks wouldn't necessarily be required. There would be nowhere to put the railway lines though. Thats why this would never happen.

Build a car park wherever they like - transport is a metter for free enterprise.

Reasons To Agree
I like this idea, so long as your car is protected from vandals etc

I think it is a great idea!!! More people would be able to have a faster way to get from a-b without petrol costs... allthough if it would cost too much it wouldnt be successful.

I think there's plenty of room for a railway line(s), personally. Build another bridge over the harbour and put at least 2 tracks on it.

what happened to staggered work times - 20 years ago that idea was doing the rounds, why are we so robotic and sheep like that we must all start and finish at the same time - hench the traffic jams

If 3rd world countries like India can find room to put in rail tracks then surely NZ can.Rail is teh ONLY way to go and the North shore needs a decent rail line connecting to the city as the population becomes more dense .Some lines can go underground , where there is a will there is a way

The Train tracks could an overhead rail that would not be at all disruptive of trafic, probably be cheaper than the current bus lane construction and more environment friendly

If we'd listened to Mayor Robbie 40+ years ago we wouldn't be in this mess.
