Pylons get go ahead

The go-ahead has been given for plans for new power lines to supply electricity to Auckland, despite fierce opposition from local farmers. While no-one likes having 70 metre high pylons in their back yard, Auckland is a growing city and it is important it has a good supply of power. The project has already taken three years to gain apporval, and it appears some diehard NIMBYists still want to fight on. This is a victory for the National interests over NIMBYists. It does show that change to the RMA is needed to help speed up big projects from NIMBYist delays.
