Auckland council has comprehensively rejected the previous Labour Government's proposal for transport tunnels underneath Waitematā Harbour.
The council's transport committee voted against the proposal a day after a report showed it would cost $56 billion and didn't have the support of the Ministry of Transport or Auckland Transport.
Now it's back to the drawing board to find less costly plans for a second crossing. North Shore ward councillor Chris Darby seconded mayor Wayne Brown's opposition to the plan.
Darby spoke to Corin Dann.
