Auckland councillors have voted to progress a new parking strategy to public consultation, RNZ reports. It would potentially remove roadside parking on about 3% of the city’s roads over the next decade, replacing them with carpooling, bus and cycle lanes. Fees may also be introduced for park-and rides facilities. Auckland Transport head of integrated network planning Andrew McGill said that, on the basis of what the mayor and others have said, AT changed its position to include consultation through individual projects.
