Trans­port costly

Auckland City Harbour News - - News -

An­other re­port on in­ner city trans­port is­sues has cost ratepay­ers about $40,000.

The $80,000 study on park­ing in the cen­tral city was jointly funded by the Auck­land City Coun­cil and Heart of the City.

It comes on top of $116,000 in re­ports, pro­pos­als and peer re­views into the now aban­doned Queen St bus lane pro­posal.

Trans­port gen­eral man­ager Don Munro says the re­port is not di­rectly re­lated to the bus lane pro­posal.

It was com­mis­sioned as a re­sult of con­cern from Heart of the City that park­ing was af­fect­ing peo­ple’s choice to visit the cen­tral city.

The study is ex­pected to be re­ported to the CBD board and trans­port com­mit­tee later this year.

The coun­cil is plan­ning to spend an­other $500,000 on a wider study into cen­tral city trans­port.
