Nick Smith on rejecting the Milford Tunnel

Wednesday 17 Jul 2013 7:13 p.m.

A bus tunnel between Queenstown and Milford Sound – a world heritage area?

Conservation Minister Nick Smith had a big decision, not so tough for the Greens, or even for Labour, but for a National Party member balancing the environment and business.     

Remember, this government is building roads like bees build honeycombs.

The minister's decision was announced this afternoon at the Beehive. Campbell Live reporter Whena Owen was there, and she called Dan Parker in Glenorchy with the news.

Dr Smith talks to John Campbell about the decision.

Watch the video for the full interview and Whena Owen's report.
