Factor in other rail benefits

LETTER

Re: Wairoa to Napier rail line revival delayed, October 7 story.

Get the terminology right please. Badly damaged in, not “by”, a storm. Some evidence points to a lack of maintenance of the overflow culverts.

And why is the discussion limited to economic benefit in freight haulage terms? Other benefits, including more jobs, should be factored in.
