    The search for a new boss to take charge of the Let's Get Wellington Moving project is still going ... 10 months on

    The search for a new boss to take charge of the Let's Get Wellington Moving project is still going ... 10 months on


    Programme Director Andrew Body resigned from the top job in March last year, after a scathing review found the transport project was at risk of failing.

    The board's been having a tough time finding a replacement for Body, and Independent Chairman Dave Brash says they're even recruiting internationally.

    The project is set to overhaul Wellington's transport, by introducing light rail, a second Mt Victoria tunnel and removing private vehicles from the Golden Mile.

    Governance Reference Group Chairman Daran Ponter is confident the project remains in good hands.
