The 10-year Regional Land Transport Plan (RLTP) for Auckland has emerged from consultation with small changes, and with carbon emissions due to fall by only 1 per cent by 2031, Stuff reports. The transport plan still faces a challenge from the All Aboard climate coalition for failing to make a sufficient dent in emissions. This is despite the plan’s final sign-off the week of June 21st. The major changes to the RLTP include the removal by the government of the $3.5 billion Mill Road arterial route, a decision unrelated to the RLTP consultation.
