Wellington isn't only built on rock and roll, it's contained by its valleys. The Hutt was built on the quarter acre, and Auckland was built around the motorway.

Tom over at WellUrban has highlighted a problem with the amusing Hutt Valley advertising campaign. Like in the movie End of Suburbia, the Hutt is founded on the car and cheap oil. There's also some interesting commentary on public transport development on WellUrban. Take a browse.

Over on Frogblog, an informative short doco series (linked) highlights the car dependence of Auckland. It is a valuable illustration of the importance of public transport thinking in local and central government.

I've touched on this suburban car dominated madness before. These are more than useful additions.
