Not seeing wood for trees

LETTER

It doesn’t take rocket science to work out that logging truck are damaging the roads. Common sense tells me to start with enforcing lighter payloads. If we really looked into the costs of forestry it would probably end up uneconomical, with all the damage caused to roads, waterways and beaches etc.

The biggest beneficiary is the ECT-owned port. The biggest loser is the Gisborne ratepayer. It might be tolerable if ECT distributed some of its millions to the wider community which is still meeting the dearest supply charges for electricity in NZ.

Both Mr Holdsworth and Mr Moreton are to be congratulated for their exposition of the charlatans employed supposedly for the benefit of Gisborne's citizens.
They all have their noses in the trough and care for nothing other than their own enrichment.

If it wasn't for forestry Rex, Gisborne would look like Whanganui or Taumarunui . . . stuffed.
