Ripu Bhatia Reporter from Auckland Stuff

Transport projects in Auckland have been given a $7.3 billion boost to be distributed over the next three years.

Major projects like the City Rail Link, Light Rail, Eastern Busway will be supported by the funds, as well highway upgrades and new walking and cycling connections.

It is part of a $24.3 billion transport package announced by Waka Kotahi NZ Transport Agency on Tuesday.

Waka Kotahi spokesperson Steve Mutton said the funding will support growth with more accessible, sustainable travel options.

“Auckland is a world class city and it needs a world-class transport system that is safe and efficient to keep everyone moving as New Zealand’s largest city continues to grow,” he said.

Poll: Have you witnessed violence/antisocial behaviour on public transport?

Ripu Bhatia Reporter from Auckland Stuff

Hi neighbours,

A new text service will make it easier to report incidents of violence and antisocial behaviour on buses and trains.

Mayor Phil Goff said a number of recent incidents have prompted Auckland Transport to launch the service in collaboration with Crime Stoppers NZ.

Passengers who witness an incident of anti-social behaviour, tagging, crime or fare evasion can text details of the incident to 4030.

AT will then look into the issue and may deploy staff to investigate further.

Have you witnessed violence/antisocial behaviour on public transport?

If so, please share your experience!
