Today the Council voted to undertake an extensive review of the role of Ports of Auckland before deciding on whether to support further expansion into the harbor. The decision was made in a Council meeting this morning. … (the council pulled) the brakes on further expansion of the Auckland port into the Waitemata Harbour but stopped short of putting a permanent end to the expansion.
It’s not over yet – however, the AAA and similar organizations consider this initial step a victory. : ).
