Fixing Auckland's Transport

Fixing Auckland's Transport

Auckland is the country’s fastest growing region with transport considered the single biggest issue. Major investment is needed in the next decade to avoid worsening congestion and the impact this will have on our economy, environment and way of life. The choice between a basic transport network or investing more to get the advanced transport programme set out in the 30-year vision, the Auckland Plan, will determine whether we choose to fix Auckland’s transport issues and get our city moving.
