NZIA City Talks: Ben Schrader: Four Lanes to the Planes? Yeah Right

10 September 2018

For over fifty years Wellingtonians have been protesting the advance of their urban motorway through the central city to the airport, pitting urbanites against suburbanites, modernisers against heritage buffs, and petrolheads against environmentalists. Whereas Aucklanders largely embraced their motorways, Wellingtonians have been far more ambivalent about theirs. This talk seeks to explain why.

In partnership with NZIA Wellington Branch. Part of the Festival of Architecture.
