Auckland's (NZ) transport levy

Auckland Council’s Budget Committee has agreed to introduce an interim transport levy so that work can begin on fixing Auckland’s transport problems.

The interim levy is in response to the majority of Aucklanders opting to pay more for the Auckland Transport Network Plan during public consultation and in an independent survey earlier this year.

To fill the $12 billion funding gap for the full Auckland Plan network, Auckland also opted for a motorway user charge.

New investments to include:
  • increases in walking and cycling funding across Auckland of $124 million
  • $43 million for North-western busway and an additional 45km of bus lanes
  • park and ride extensions at Silverdale, Pukekohe and Papakura
  • delivering arterial and local road networks
  • public transport safety improvements for rail crossings.

Irish benefits from mobile safety cameras

In 2011 the Republic of Ireland introduced mobile safety cameras on dangerous roads which have, according to the country’s first cost-benefit analysis of the technology, saved an average of 23 lives a year.

A study by the Department of Economics at Trinity College, Dublin, carried out for the Irish Department of Transport, has also found that benefits outweighed costs by more than five to one.

From the first year of operation, the monetary value of the benefits delivered far exceeded their costs. The benefits were mostly societal, with almost 92% being delivered in the form of reduced accident levels.
