Most people (including the government) have realised that the light rail
from Auckland City to the airport isn't practical. The Superannuation Fund
mentioned is still keen. I think like the City Rail Loop the main benefit of
this would be, as a development creating a lot of investment along the
route.



Most railfans seem to agree now that any rail to the airport should go
directly to the NIMT. Once there was a dream for the airport to be reached
via the Onehunga Branch but this now seems to be impractical and expensive.



The story is that the Super Fund says there will be no blowout in cost,
don't they all blowout costwise?
