Update on Communications with Auckland Transport

The ongoing email exchange continues – AT seem to think our case is closed, however, there are still a number of outstanding issues, as previously outlined.  The battle continues and we are hopeful of being able to enlist the assistance of the Community Board and Councillors once the final results are published.  The email exchange continues.
Auckland Transport and roading issues in general are a very hot topic around the country with numerous articles in the Herald and also on various radio programmes – it would seem that we are not alone in our fight for better roads.  One can perhaps live in hope that the new Mayor of Auckland will live up to his promise of dealing with AT!
There is a Public Meeting being held on 2nd November at 5pm at the Auckland Trades Hall, 147 Great North Road which features the Transport Minister Michael Wood; two of the WRRA Executive Committee members will be attending to see what he has to say. Please attend if you are able.
There is also a very interesting article in the October issue of the Ponsonby News (Facebook is @ponsonbynews if you want to read – page 15).   This article touches on two projects planned by AT – one in Grey Lynn on Great North Road and the other on Meola Rd from Pt Chevalier Rd to Garnet Rd – a total expenditure of just on $75 million; the work mostly includes controlled pedestrian crossings, cycle ways, bus lanes, restricted parking, humps and bumps along the roads, etc.
This expenditure at a time when our roads are falling to pieces seems somewhat ludicrous.
