This photo showing traffic immediately outside the north-eastern end of the Basin Reserve, right where the New Zealand Transport Agency wants to build a 9-metre-tall, 380-metre-long flyover, was taken at 11am on Wednesday 19 December. That’s right – the week before Christmas, when everyone is racing around trying to get their pre-Christmas lists done.

How will the poor driver of this solitary car ever cope with the congestion on all sides? No wonder NZTA wants to ruin an iconic Wellington landmark by building a flyover there!
