A longer airport runway – 4 years ago #
It's good, but it's in the wrong place... Almost all major cities in the world have their larger airports not in the city. Why Wellington is hell-bent on extending a small airport on reclaimed land, over building an expressway airport in the Hutt Valley (and stimulating an area of Greater Wellington that's dying) and having good connections (the tracks are almost to it already) is beyond me. $300 M could build close to a brand new, state of the art airport, connected by trains, so green, in an area that also suffers significantly less wind issues also than the current airport.
