Transmission Gully, the new $1.25 billion motorway out of Wellington, will not be open by Christmas. 

Waka Kotahi NZ Transport Agency confirmed in a statement this morning the builder has run out of time to complete safety, quality assurance, and consent tasks for the road to open in time for the holidays. 

Mark Mitchell and Michael Wood joined Mike Yardley to discuss the week's politics news.
