Auckland Transport’s board will consider the regional land transport plan afresh this afternoon, after ditching the draft 10-year budget staff proposed on 1 February.
18,000 groups & individuals submitted on the draft plan, which sets transport priorities & budgets for the next decade & beyond.
Auckland Transport chair Dr Lester Levy said yesterday that, for the first time, “the draft regional land transport plan outlines priorities where Auckland Council, the Government & Auckland Transport are fully aligned”.
Public consultation on it was conducted in May.
Submitters were asked for their feedback on specific challenges identified in the draft:
- Decreases in accessibility
- Impact on the environment, and
- Supporting growth in the region
Dr Levy said the majority of submitters agreed with the draft plan’s identification of key transport challenges.
Auckland Transport also sought feedback through the draft consultation on the level of support for specific areas of work, to inform funding priorities. Dr Levy said over 80% supported investment in the areas listed in the draft plan.
The draft document also outlines the timing of capital work over the next 10 years.
The transport plan is still subject to funding confirmation through the council’s long-term plan budget process and the finalisation of regional fuel tax legislation. The Land Transport Management (Regional Fuel Tax) Amendment Bill went to the committee of the whole house in Parliament yesterday.
The board will hold the open session of its meeting at 2.30pm today at Auckland Transport’s headquarters, 20 Viaduct Harbour Avenue, at the corner of Fanshawe & Halsey Sts.
