The Basin Reserve has been saved:
Controversial plans to build a flyover next to the Basin Reserve in Wellington have been killed off by a board of inquiry.
In a stunning move today, four commissioners declined resource consent for the New Zealand Transport Agency’s proposed $90 million project.
It means the agency’s plans to build a 265-metre elevated highway 20 metres north of the historic cricket ground are now all but dead in the water.
Good. And now possibly Wellington can get on with designing a city for people, not cars.
