Election Transport Debate
Campaign for Better Transport To Host Election Transport Debate
The Campaign for Better Transport will be hosting a public meeting for political parties to present their transport policies, with a particular focus on Auckland's needs.
"Now the Waterview tunnel is finished, we can say our motorway network is complete," said spokesperson Cameron Pitches.
"We are looking forward to hearing what transport projects the various parties propose next in Auckland, and how they plan to fund them."
However, not all parties will be attending. The current Minister of Transport Simon Bridges is unable to attend, as is the Associate Minister of Transport Tim Macindoe.
"We're disappointed that no one from National is able to attend, as they have done so at every one of these election meetings we've held in the past." said Mr Pitches.
Confirmed attendees are:
Denis O'Rourke from NZ First
Phil Twyford from Labour
Julie Anne Genter from the Green Party
David Hay from The Opportunities Party
Each speaker has been allocated up to ten minutes to speak, to be followed by questions from the Chair and closing statements.
The meeting will be held at the Mt Eden War Memorial Hall, and is timed for a 7:30pm start on Tuesday 22nd August.
