'Tolls: The Mayors
are taking serious and wrong actions'
"The Mayors of Auckland City, Waitakere City and Manukau
City are taking serious and wrong actions when asking
Government to give Councils the power to toll existing
roads" says Elaine West, representative of RAM Residents
The Mayor of Auckland City, Dick
Hubbard, did NOT take a stand at local body elections saying
that he would lobby Council and the Government to toll new
and old roads across the Auckland region. Yet as Mayor, Dick
Hubbard has so far proposed HOT (high occupancy lane tolls)
and cordon tolls.
