Transport questions for mayoral hopefuls
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.
