Mark Thomas - New Mayor for Auckland

Auckland Traffic Congestion Worse With Wrong Mayor

Auckland mayoral candidates presented at the Auckland Transport Infrastructure Forum.

We were asked what we thought would have happened to traffic congestion by the end of our second terms.

I said my aim was for an improvement, but realistically the best likely to be achieved was status quo.

However I said it would be even worse if Phil Goff is mayor because it will take him longer to get to grips with Council, and he doesn’t have the commercial relationships that are so essential for us to fund it.

Paul Minett’s helpful overview of the debate is here.
