Joyce Excited About Auck Transport
Transport minister Steven Joyce opened the Onehunga train station and re-activated line today and spelt out his transport policy principles and how excited he is about the new Auckland Transport CCO.
He said as an Aucklander, he was aware of the importance of transport links in the city but there was limited money available for infrastructure.
He was confident the new Auckland Transport CCO body would sort it out for Auckland’s good.
Earlier speakers had talked about Auckland’s rail renaissance and how public transport use was growing fast.
