Re: Lessons for Wellington from Canberra's light rail

I'd say Gold Coast is a better example, indeed the best in Australia, because it's up and running, successful and proven already, being extended to integrate with rail, uses some tight road spaces (to address a common objection in the comments on that piece), is fast and is well-integrated with the bus system that feeds it.

The regional councillors who wrote this morning’s newspaper op ed were, incidentally, the only current ones to challenge the imminent trolleybus abandonment!

IMHO, Adelaide would have been a better example for a fact-finding visit, being a long-extant system in the process of extension (comparable to the role that LRT should play in Wellington), but any politician interest in LRT is to be welcomed.
