CEAC Calls for NZTA ‘wellbeing’ rules to be ‘reset’ by NZ govt
The latest truck fire on an NZTA operated ‘Napier Port roading network’ shows that NZTA are still lacking responsible actions to avoid truck accidents yet again.https://www.nzherald.co.nz/nz/news/article.cfm?c_id=1&objectid=12230001
NZ has been shocked about all the spiralling deaths on our roads involving trucks.
Now we see even trucks are now catching fire inside our cities residential communities, as seen in this last week in the press release in the NZ Herald, when quote; “A truck and trailer has caught on fire at Taradale Rd in the Napier suburb of Onekawa today”.https://www.nzherald.co.nz/nz/news/article.cfm?c_id=1&objectid=12230001
This 187% increased expansion of truck freight by 2027
being announced by Napier Port Board last January 2019 when
in partnership with NZTA is now threatening to our Napier
residents and our NGO.
• With this massive truck movement activity planed NZTA must now plan for a ‘global’ use of a “ring road” system used to take all heavy traffic onto a ring road system, diverting all heavy traffic outside of the cities, and not through it as NZTA has planned it everywhere today.
• Now Napier
Port board must also use of rail to transport freight to and
from the Napier Port, as part of the ‘zero carbon bill’
and the ‘wellbeing bill’.
We need ‘US style’ ‘ring road’ heavy truck routes around our NZ cities not through the middle of them like Napier has.
Ring road - From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

inner ring road of Sheffield, England
A ring road (also known as beltline, beltway, circumferential (high)way, loop or orbital) is a road or a series of connected roads encircling a town, city, or country. The most common purpose of a ring road is to assist in reducing traffic volumes in the urban centre, such as by offering an alternate route around the city for drivers who do not need to stop in the city core.
Some of the many mistakes made by NZTA.
We are now calling for urgent action be taken by Government over the spiralling truck volumes causing danger and accidents plaguing NZ today.
• Government needs to force a total
“reset” of NZTA because they are now clearly
dysfunctional after many cases of wellbeing;
• failing truck brakes.
• Warrant of Fitness.
• trailer hitches.
• Truck drivers found cheating of log books, & drivers found working outside of regulatory hours,
• Several trucks catching fire.
• Increased fatalities showing no sign of being lowered.
• Lack of NZTA acting for residents reasonable resolutions for community ‘wellbeing’ mitigation.
this lack of NZTA to control for ‘wellbeing’ and road
safety clearly now shows we need a total reset of this out
of control NZTA road controlling
Many reports have been seen by our Centre over the years in the press about NZTA failure at not listen to years of warnings from Citizen’s groups all over NZ complaining about NZTA’s lack of willingness to work with communities wellbeing affected by many complaints made to them of dis-satisfaction with NZTA due their lack of services to mitigate the complaints made about road design and road activities and operations.
About how a public owned roading agency must act. - “As the rules must apply to everyone not just a few”
TO; Government we say “Enough is enough” we say, - fix this errant agency and ‘reset’ NZTA with a new regulatory set of rules to work with residents groups with focus on ‘wellbeing’ to resolve all citizens issues now before more lives are lost on roads and those living alongside them.
Napier Port must be also be ‘reset’ with new
regulatory set of rules involving ‘wellbeing’ to work
with all residents groups to resolve all citizens
