    Sooo true … and I think Dunedin people are sick of it … coloured roads, feet, cycleways etc. but feel powerless!!!! To have only one road (and now cluttered with lights, lanes etc) to the way north out of the city will be a disaster!! What on earth inspired such nonsense!! And how to undo it all? I fear even if you become mayor (my vote!!!) you may not have the power to change it! Loved your Gardens speech …

    When the eye watering inflation kicks in, ensure those politicians responsible for aye-ing the debt, be called to account.

    Highest inflation for 10 years. This is going to have everyone in Dunners walking and hitching a ride.
