10.CHRIS BISHOP to the Minister of Transport: Does he stand by his statement of 16 May 2019 when announcing the Let’s Get Wellington Moving transport package, “What we have said in terms of the Mt Victoria tunnel, and we considered this very carefully, where we have landed on this is that the work on an additional Mt Victoria tunnel would happen towards the end of the first decade. Like all of the components in the package it will be subject to the normal business case process and we will want to be reassured that the investment in extra roading capacity, with an additional Mt Vic tunnel, won’t undermine the core objectives we have to get people out of single-occupant vehicles and into public transport and walking and cycling”, and is this still the case following the Wellington City Council election results?
