Auckland Council

Albany Ward
The Auckland Council makes strategic decisions for Auckland on public transport, urban planning, environmental protection and other big issues. The council provides funding to local boards to provide public services in their areas, and manages council-controlled organisations which provide infrastructure, such as public transport, water and sewerage. The councillors and mayor make up the governing body, which shares governance of Auckland Council with the 21 local boards. The governing body is made up of 20 councillors plus the mayor. Councillors are elected to represent wards (areas in Auckland). Two councillors will be elected from your ward. This is a first past the post (FPP) election, so you vote by ticking the name of your preferred candidate on your ballot paper. Compare the candidates and their policies to decide who to vote for in the Auckland Council election.

Transport

Helping communities get from A to B is a key responsibility of local government, from making sure the buses run on time to providing car parking and walking and cycling paths. Whether public transport is the responsibility of the regional or local council depends on where you are in the country. Local councils also own 87% of New Zealand’s roads.

  • Create safe, cheaper affordable reduced disability travel city wide on taxis, shuttles, and transport providers for all disabled and carers.

    Increase public transport, cycling, share bikes, road safety and user friendly transport options without added costs, road congestion.

    Forge seamless smooth transport infrastructure, with significantly reduced road congestion with innovative Aucklanders' ideas and rewards.

  • Improve the sad state of our footpaths, so vulnerable residents can remain safe and stay integrated and supported by our community.

    Progress discussions about a rapid transit system north of the Harbour Bridge which includes an additional crossing.

    Ensure that the new climate action targeted rate is spend evenly across Auckland so that we too can enjoy the benefits locally.

  • Incentivise uptake of low carbon alternatives including electric cars, e-bikes, buses, ferries – increasing services, charging and reliability.

    Maximise and effectively leverage existing transport infrastructure eg footpaths, heavy rail and ferry networks.

    Enable smoother traffic flows across region with more active traffic light optimisation and monitoring/reduction of peak flows.

  • Commit to active transport solutions that are delivered without loss for private vehicle transport.

    Seek an active and well publicised lobbying of central government in regard to the vital creation of a second harbour crossing.

    Commit to zero emission bus led solutions to specific public transport plans – for instance, buses not light rail to the airport.

  • Cancel the nonsense 'climate change' plan, costing ratepayers $1,000 million over 10 years, for a 1% reduction in vehicle emissions.

    Cancel the building of bicycle lanes, which 82% of ratepayers don't want, costing $2000 million. The delusional nonsense needs to stop.

    Restore proper servicing to transport infrastructure like roads, bridges, car parks and footpaths, because Auckland is short of 500 bus drivers.

  • Rapid and reliable public transport with more routes and frequency. Bring forward light rail to the north and north west.

    Improve accessibility by connecting pedestrian and cycle ways.

    Prioritise solutions like Penlink to ease congestion. Public transport along Penlink from opening.
