Regional Fuel Tax delivering critical projects across AKL

Published: Wed 12 Sep 2018 10:48 AM
In its first month of operation the Regional Fuel Tax (RFT) has generated $13.2 million (excluding GST) with the first projects made possible by this revenue already announced.
Projects include delivering rural road safety upgrades in Rodney and Franklin and six new red light safety cameras at dangerous intersections across Auckland. Building the vital Matakana link road, funding ferry terminal upgrades and a new bus interchange in downtown Auckland are other early priorities.
“The human, social and economic cost to our community of the road toll is huge and spending on road safety will be an immediate priority from this revenue.
“Aside from road safety spending, the focus of new investment from the RFT is to fix Auckland’s congested transport network,” said Mayor Phil Goff.
