Len’s wet bus ticket response to Port Expansion

Len Brown is playing us all for the fool.

Rather than do the right thing Len has instructed Stephen Town to ‘encourage’ Ports of Auckland to halt wharf expansions.

Auckland Council has formally asked Ports of Auckland to halt construction of two massive wharf extensions.

At a meeting today, Mr Brown said council chief executive Stephen Town had written a letter to Auckland Council Investments Ltd, the council body overseeing the port company, requesting it to encourage the port company to hold off the wharf extensions until a port study had been completed.


What’s the point of that?

I can only imagine Ports of Auckland responding that they understand clearly the concern, but decline to be encouraged and are moving on with piling works.

This is what one gets from a lame duck Mayor who is sitting on and hiding secret agenda and back room deals with the Ports.

A response like this is nothing more than a wet bus ticket.
