Big questions remain over the future of New Zealand's biggest Public Private Partnership Project, Transmission Gully, as discussions take place between the major stakeholders.

Slated to open in November, the construction of the 27km stretch of motorway, north of the capital, has now been delayed into mid next year. The bill has already grown by nearly 200 million from an original estimate of 850 million dollars. Road Transport Forum New Zealand Chief Executive Nick Leggett and Porirua City Council Mayor Anita Baker join Kathryn to discuss.
