Campbell Live has an exclusive story about a road of national significance, which is not as significant as we've all been led to think.

The Government is spending $12 billion on upgrading the country's land transport system and, in part, they're doing so because, “the new infrastructure will benefit the economy.”

Fair enough.

But we've obtained documents stating a major road project just north of Wellington won't benefit the economy, as much as it's costing the economy to build it.

Our source - internal Government documents.

So, why are those figures being ignored?
