What did the New Zealand Transport Agency do when it found out that Wellington City Council was holding a vote on the flyover yesterday? It rushed out a letter to the Council’s Chief Executive threatening to withdraw support and funding for other transport projects in Wellington if the Council did not support the flyover.

Well, it didn’t work. The Council voted to reject the flyover and investigate other options. And now we have obtained a copy of NZTA’s letter to the Council, which showcases NZTA’s characteristic mixture of bullying and petulance. See for yourself:
