Auckland National MPs are fighting for a billion dollar motorway project the new Government wants to drop.

Denise Lee, Simeon Brown and Jami-Lee Ross have launched a petition to gather support for the East-West Link.

Maungakiekie MP Lee says by sending the link connecting state highways 1 and 20 back to the drawing board, the new Government has signalled it does not understand the urgency of Auckland’s congestion issues.

She says the project is supported by council, iwi, and has been approved by an Environmental Protection Agency board of inquiry.

Iwi are divided over the project, with Ngati Whatua Orakei and Makaurau Marae voicing strong opposition.

Love him or loathe him Winston Peters will be (well, soon to be) Prime Minister
John Tamihere: Love him or hate him, vote for him or against him, either way, Winston Peters will be Prime Minister - albeit as acting PM only.
Time for government to step up and sort out 'after-hours debacle' says Tamihere
