Looking at Where Next with our transport
I am going to try something a bit different in the Transport Funding (that I call the Alternative Transport Funding Package) debate. Rather than the long written essays I am going to try some audio pod casts no longer than five minutes per podcast. Each pod-cast will cover a different aspect of the Alternative Transport Funding Package that was released by the Mayor Len Brown, and the Independent Advisory Board. For each pod cast I will also have reference links and reference embeds relevant to that pod-cast attached to the blog post the pod-cast is on. There might be some cases I have to do a particular pod-cast in two five-minute blocks if the material is meaty but I shall let you know when I have done so.
It might seem that I am going through a bit of a long lead up to the crunch point (that being the 10 questions) of the Alternative Funding Package debate. What I am doing is bring in the wider context from earlier commentary on the funding situation that had led to the current situation that is the funding package announced yesterday. While the pod casts do follow a logical sense of order it does require you to do some reading (usually the reference material attached) prior to help get the full context of the debate itself. If you do have questions feel free to leave them in the comment box below and I will endeavour to get back to you ASAP.

Note: I will cover the Congestion Free Network when I come to the ’10 Questions sent the Mayoral Office’ section of the pod cast commentary

The next pod cast will be a slightly longer one as I do the full presentation I was meant to give to the Auckland Development Committee earlier this month on an alternative funding regime for our transport projects, rather than the short version I had to give.
