Auckland is set to get the lion's share of the Government's new transport infrastructure funding.

Nearly $3.5 billion is going to the region towards roads, rail and paths.

The Capital will get a $1.35 billion boost and $159 million has been set aside for Canterbury.

Newstalk ZB contributor Mike Yardley told Chris Lynch the government is focused on the north and the crumbs being given to Canterbury is highly insulting.
