to clear up some confusion regarding my use of the term 'overbuilt' in the above comment. I'm referring to the road capacity which is much greater than the need. Upper Wellington, for example, has been reduced to 1 lane each way for about 4 months and I've yet to see anything remotely close to a traffic tie-up at any time of the day or night. 2 lanes each plus turning lanes is simply not needed there and on many mountain 'uppers'. We've overbuilt our road capacity which directly leads to speeding and careless driving as the streets are always wide open and empty, encouring such bad driving habits. We could easily eliminate one lane each way and add bike lanes for a more balanced option.
