Hit back against the 'Hubbard Crawl'


Peoples Choice is helping motorists to hit back against the 'Hubbard
Crawl'

If you use any roads around Pakuranga, Botany, and Howick on weekday
mornings you will be aware of the major delays at the Panmure
Roundabout. This is a result of loopy changes made to lane layout by
Auckland City Council. Pakuranga MP Maurice Williamson has publicly
called on Mr Hubbard to intervene and sort the problem out. But because
it mainly affects residents of Manukau City, Mayor Dick Hubbard couldn't
care less. Well we may not be able to vote him out, but we can make him
aware of our frustration by charging him for the additional time and
cost being incurred by eastern motorists.

Go to the Peoples Choice website at www.peopleschoice.org.nz and follow
the link to our invoice. Calculate how much more time you take to get to
work or take the kids to school, then charge him for your time and cost.
$50 per hour should be the least ! Fill it in and post it to Mr
Hubbard.

Then send this email on to anyone else who drives in Pakuranga, Howick,
and Botany in the morning. As you know, you don't have to use the
Panmure roundabout to be affected - Pakuranga Road, Botany Road, Ti
Rakau Drive, Glenmore Rd, and many other roads are all at a stand still
thanks to Mr Hubbard.

And so Peoples Choice can keep a tally of what Mr Hubbard is being
charged, email your amount to us info@peopleschoice.org.nz

Lets clog up the Auckland City Council mail system like he's clogged up our
roads !

Many thanks
The Peoples Choice team

When it comes to funding and managing public transport, should local government or central government bear most of the responsibility for delivering a quality service? Ratepayers or taxpayers? Those basic questions re-surfaced yesterday, after the government announced its intention to scrap the Public Transport Operating Model (PTOM) imposed by the last National government in 2013. That model had required councils to use private contractors to run the buses, via a cut-throat competitive tendering process...
