You'll probably have seen in the news the damage done to the Auckland Harbour Bridge in freak winds last week. It led to reduced lanes and commuter chaos but we saw real leadership by Auckland Transport and Waka Kotahi in creating a temporary bus lane linking the city centre to the Harbour Bridge. It reduces congestion by making buses faster, accessible and more reliable. We think this could be the beginning of an array of permanent low-carbon, transformative solutions to ease congestion and we are excited to see what else Waka Kotahi and Auckland Transport implement in the future to encourage walking, cycling and busing across Hauraki.
To show our support and thank them for their work we dropped by their offices this morning delivering a plant and a handwritten letter. Read below to see what we said!
