Yes you are wrong, as I said there are some things that Wellington is lucky for, like having space for three mains into Wellington Station and there are some things Auckland is doing well like station design. In the end I think it is more of an indictment of Auckland that things had to get so bad before they did any improvements
Well I'm glad I'm wrong, but I got the impression by the way things were worded.
Back on topic; the reason why Auckland is getting better stations is because the Auckland network is getting funding to get the stations. If any NZ government decided to spend the same sort of money improving the stations on the Wellington network then you'd see pretty similar stations there too.
Not sure why you prefer overbridges to tunnels. Sure they're usually cheaper and always harder to grafitti, but they're also exposed to the elements and usually have a lower capacity for pedestrian traffic. In my opinion either is better suited for whatever situation.
