All about the budget
As Winston Peters announces which way he will well swing today (Labour or National) I have a short but sharp message when it comes to transport vision.
From Brent Toderian:
Rather straight forward. You prioritise wide roads for cars and that is what you get – cars and chronic congestion (and a pretty shit city). Priortise for transit and active modes and you get a liveable city.
Remember as said: The Truth About a City’s Aspirations isn’t found in its vision (the Auckland Transport Statement of Intent). It is found in it’s (Auckland Transport) Budget (cars, more cars, parking buildings, slip lanes and did I say cars).
The Truth About a Government Aspirations isn’t found in its vision (talk about transit). It is found in it’s (Government) Budget (cars, more cars, Roads of National Significance and did I say cars).
