Cool stuff Kiwi's. Perth desperately needs a replacement indoor as well. Hope we get as good as this at least.

Let's hope Dick Hubbard does not implace an 80 decebel limit on this arena! Or 80 decebels on the cranes.

80 decibels on his cereal factory. He'll have to find a quieter way to churn out those Clipboard newsletters.

Dick-tator Hubbard, he looks like he's dancing when he talks in public, probably the same when he talks to Mrs Hubbard at the breakfast table

Just to screw things up even more they should now turn the oxidation ponds into a speedway. You'd be speeding away from all sorts of crap. It's a metaphor for people leaving Auckland's madness.

Well if they had the V8 Supercars, and all the traffic was horrendously screwed up, at least those people that complain wouldn't be able to get to their complaining appointments, and everyone with some fun inside them would be down there dodging the flyin_tires

I went past this a couple of days ago. It's looking good, starting to take shape! You can see where they're putting up the seating.

Very! It's going to be great when it's finished. Auckland has waited decades for an indoor venue like this. Hopefully now we won't loose out on so many big concerts and things.

And in the foreground you can see the monstrosity that they added onto the railway station. I still can't get over what a waste of what could have been an architectural centerpiece for Auckland it is.
