Auckland Transport is to begin charging $2-4 for all its park’n’rides, Newsroom reports, and has identified the first 240km of Auckland roads on which it proposes to eliminate kerbside parking. The initial plan was that carparks would be removed from designated (and previously unspecified) strategic roads without consultation – until Mayor Phil Goff slated the plan as “bloody arrogant”. AT backtracked and agreed to discuss the removal of carparks when they consult on individual road improvement plans – but officials remain adamant that the overall strategy of removing carparks is not up for discussion.
