I am driver of a 12-seater taxi-van and work for Greencab Queenstown. On 11th July at1am, I took a group of people from downtown outside Cookie time to their place. When they were on board, I’ve asked ‘’may I ask how many stops will you have’’, but they didn’t answer. The first stop was to drop off their friends to Lower Shotover, and I end the taximeter with the fare at $53.15. Then I start meter again from there to Kawarau Falls.
One hundred and fifty-one million bucks for an upgrade!!
One hundred and fifty-one million bucks. Did I read that right? $151 million?
Queenstown’s council is considering spending $7.55m a year for the next 20 years to upgrade Queenstown Events Centre. Hopefully some of that will be offset by Central Government shovel-ready funding and the initial commitment would be $69m over 10 years, but jeez, that is a lot of money for an upgrade, isn’t it? Wanaka won’t miss out either. The new Wanaka Recreation Centre is inline for $72m of upgrades over the next two decades.
