Government to speed up double tracking?

The Herald on Sunday reports here that

Transport Minister Pete Hodgson said last night that the Western Ring Route and the double-tracking of parts of Auckland's commuter rail system would be advanced. That's great news but rather short on detail. When? How quickly.
Meanwhile in the same article Auckland's Mayor Hubbard has emerged from the shadows to call for public funding to

electrify the commuter rail network, costing about $200m.

Yes please! Thanks Mayor. Keep the talking going and make it turn into action.
This election period is our only chance to get something happening.
