AUCKLAND'S ACCESS TO NORTH

Reading E. K. Green's most interesting articles on the development of Auckland, it struck me that no mention was" made as to whether a railway tunnel under the harbour would not greatly exceed any advantage of the Morningside tunnel. I need hardly emphasise the advantages of a quick direct route to the north, beside opening up a large area of land, bringing it in close touch with the city. The present roundabout route, taking an average of an hour by rail to Swanson, and the mere fact of the road to Whangarei being only a little over 100 miles, compared to the railway's 130, show plainly the handicap under which we suffer. And surely the stupid arrangement at Newmarket could be rectified? NORTHLAND.
