Billions are being promised for Wellington by Transport Minister Phil Twyford but some are accusing the government of misleading the public.

Twyford announced on Thursday $4.4 billion would be earmarked for regional transport projects, on top of the $6.4b announced for Wellington City's Let's Get Wellington Moving (LGWM) project.
