Onewa Rd T3 lane to get 68 new cameras to catch drivers breaking rules

Caroline Williams Reporter from North Shore Times

Onewa Rd's controversial transit lane is set to get 68 cameras to better enforce the rules and combat abuse against Auckland Transport staff.

The 2.3 kilometre road has 17 transit zones – nine towards the city and eight towards Birkenhead - which can only be used by cars with three or more passengers between 6.30am and 9am, and 4pm-6pm, Monday to Friday.

The current enforcement method involves Auckland Transport staff standing on the side of the road with a camera, however a spokesman said that put them at risk of being abused by angry motorists.

The new cameras will allow for more consistent monitoring of the lanes, the spokesman added.

Each of the 17 transit zones will have one remote monitoring unit, each containing four cameras.
