OPINION: Congratulations to the Westland company in trying to establish New Zealand's final road.
What a great benefit it will be to one and all, including the West Coast, Fiordland and Milford area.
While the Invercargill MP Eric Roy will, I am sure, endeavour to assist, I have my reservations on Bill English having the ability to help.
This was the member of Parliament, after all, who told Fiordlanders not long ago that the road was not feasible.
Best of luck to this progressive company, Westland District Property Ltd, and remember if the road to Milford was being proposed today, there would still be those members in Parliament who would still say: "No, not feasible!"
