Poll: Should Auckland build a monorail? - Reply

Matt from Henderson

Yes, I believe we need to have or build a monorail! Some people may not of think of having this but you need to look at the practical side of life. How many train failures have their been in Auckland in the recent years? Maybe 4-5 (just guessing), could be more than that. You need to have a backup transport system in case one fails so to speak.

People will ring up employers saying they will be coming late because they have to use a taxi or bus to get to work because the train has had a electric fault or failure somewhere along the line or track.

Now when the train fails, the monorail can be used as a back transport system when these things happen to the train.

You wouldn't need to ring your bosses up when the train stuffs up or has a fault somewhere, the monorail would be able to be used to take you to work much more faster and much quicker too!

That's is what I have to say about that! Yes there has been a poll on this already, but sometimes it's good to get another opinion on the matter.

Water restrictions

Ronald from Massey

Dear council, I haven't washed my car since you told us we were short of water. You also told us you were ordering restrictions, fair enough. However do you want to explain to me why I have just driven down Lincoln Rd in Henderson and saw that the wash depot. A commercially run vehicle wash station is fully operational, every wash bay was full with happy citizens cleaning their vehicles. Did you all go to the same school as the halfwits that have advised us on social distancing and other ways to manage Covid. Or is it one rule for some and another for the rest of us. Either we are short of water or we aint.
