Traffic on SH2 is terrible and the sooner we get the new motorway, the better, when is Local Government going to start putting the pressure on to fix our roads in the Western Bay, dilly dallying, playing puppets to the rich for nice to haves but unnecessary waste of money on hair brained ideas, no wonder 3 waters is getting taken off you, cant even fix the road, rather build cycle tracks for weekend use rather than fix the disruption caused by overpopulated road leading to Tauranga with one two lane bridge, very, very blind and you should have gone to spec savers or just retire and let some young blood in there, no excuses, get the bloody motorway built now you idiots, it’s just going to get worse, how many people have you seen bike to work lately, that’s right, 0.00. Waste of bloody money.
