New Zealand Officials Launch Auckland Tolling Study

The New Zealand Herald reports that the national government and Auckland Council “have started a new project to investigate ‘smarter transport pricing in Auckland’, three years after the council did extensive work on a tolling scheme that would have seen motorists pay $2 each time they used the motorway.” The newspaper adds, “The Smarter Transport Pricing Project [a collaboration of several national and local agencies] will undertake a thorough investigation to support a decision on whether or not to proceed with introducing pricing for demand management in Auckland.”
