A sign that we took this picture of in Kapiti Road in 2012, fairly close to where the Expressway interchange construction is now taking place.

It was the issue which cost former mayor Jenny Rowan her job in the elections the following year: she polled third.

The protesters obviously saw the ‘super-city’ notion as salvation against this sort of stupid, massive waste of money, but as we have seen, it would be like going from the frying pan to the fire.  The KCDC ignored popular feeling on this issue, but the super-city would be even worse.
