Is it because a freight rail line doesn’t offer the same photo opportunities?
Jun 16, 2017 — New Zealand public watch dog group Citizen's Resistance knows Geoff Simmons is solid on Rail, TOP is also very strong on a transparent democracy. Here is what they are saying;
"It is appalling enough that Mr Bridges tried to suppress the release of the Wiri to Westfield rail line business case, particularly given that we are all shareholders in KiwiRail. This is yet another example of Establishment Parties slowly bending the public service to their own ends, instead of doing what they should do; serve the public."
"While the Ombudsman has successfully twisted Mr Bridges arm to release the paper in question, he has still held back the most important piece of information - the benefit cost ratio (BCR). The BCR tells us whether this is a good investment or not. Given the Government is squandering billions on roads with questionable BCRs (such as the East West Link), the public deserves to know what the BCR of this investment is."
