Transport Minister confronted over Mt Albert motorway

1:09 pm on 3 July 2009

Mt Albert residents confronted Transport Minister Steven Joyce on Friday about Government plans to build a motorway through Mt Albert.

The Minister visited the Alan Wood Reserve, a park that will disappear when the motorway is built.

He was greeted with signs held by a group of about 14 which read, 'State Highway Tunnel or Nothing'.

However, Mr Joyce says the tunnel option is completely unaffordable.
