A Brief View of Auckland
Was a busy day in the NZ Herald today with two different articles on Auckland’s Transport, and another two on our Council Control Organisations.
The two transport articles were:
- MP cries foul over ‘unfair’ travel zone; where Labour MP Phil Twyford has a whinge about AT’s zone fare map in its Regional Public Transport Plan
- Rail pass move ‘discrimination; where the NZ Herald picks up on the issues of Family Passes and Day Rovers not being easily accessible to rail passengers any more
In both these cases I have run commentary on these and are giving specific mention in my submission to Auckland Transport‘s Regional Public Transport Plan. Further commentary will be at hand as the week advances and I continue my RPTP submission.
As for the other two articles covering our CCO‘s, they were:
In regards to these issues, I have run commentary on this before and it seems I will be doing so again here at BR:AKL again this week if not next week. CCO’s being secretive is one of my pet hates and a campaign plank as I run for Papakura Local Board in next year’s Local Government 2013 Elections.
So yes today was a very busy day in the NZ Herald, with plenty more to campaign on for a Better Auckland here at BR:AKL!
