Trans­port ques­tions for may­oral hope­fuls

Auckland City Harbour News - - NEWS -

Auck­land’s trans­port fu­ture will be dis­cussed at a meet­ing for may­oral can­di­dates this month.

The Cam­paign for Bet­ter Trans­port will host the meet­ing.

Con­tenders for the may­oralty in­clud­ing Len Brown, John Palino, John Minto and Ue­si­fili Unasa will be at the meet­ing to put for­ward their vi­sion for trans­port in Auck­land.

There will also be an op­por­tu­nity for peo­ple to ask ques­tions of the can­di­dates.

Cam­paign for Bet­ter Trans­port spokesman Cameron Pitches says trans­port is al­ways a hot topic at elec­tion time.

‘‘Every Auck­lan­der knows how un­pre­dictable our road­ing and pub­lic trans­port sys­tems can be. This meet­ing will al­low peo­ple to ask the prospec­tive may­ors what, ex­actly, they in­tend to do about it.’’

The in­de­pen­dent lobby group will also present its own trans­port vi­sion.

The meet­ing will be held on Septem­ber 11 at 6.45pm, at the Ellen Melville Hall, Frey­berg Place in cen­tral Auck­land.
