I didn’t know about the other proposal for a Wanuiomata Hill gondola when I wrote my post last night. My proposal is better as the one in the Hutt City document is a tourist gondola to the top of the Wainuiomata Hill and luge rides down, replicating Queenstown’s or Rotorua’s. My plan is an integrated part of public transport infrastructure designed to give quicker connectivity to Wainuiomata residents to get to Central Wellington.
As the old Red Green TV show said “if women can’t find you handsome, make sure they find you handy”.
Usefulness is the key to success. Doing things just for tourists, where there aren’t too many tourists, is a little like a cargo cult.
