NZ Herald senior writer Simon Wilson analyses the government's big transport announcement for Auckland.  He also looks at the significance of the Northcote by-election, which is the first popular test of Simon Bridges and first post-election vote on Jacinda Adern too. He says it is also a test of new transport and housing thinking, both big issues there.
