This is exactly the reply we expected — neither the KCDC nor the GWRC wants these projects, so the central government isn’t helping.

The underpass needs to be raised at council by the Waikanae ward councilor, and it would have been if Geoffrey had been elected.  Waikanae east people need to wait another three years for that.

Simon Bridges’s reply on the Otaki railway electrification differs, however, from the reply given by former GWRC Kapiti seat councilor Nigel Wilson that the central government wasn’t interested in this. The new GRWC Kapiti councilor, Penny Gaylor, needs to take this up.
