Congestion Free Network, Auckland
An initiative of Generation Zero, the Campaign for Better Transport and transportblog.co.nz, the Congestion Free Network campaign proposes an alternative public transport plan for Auckland in response to the heavily motorway-dependent Integrated Transport Plan developed by Auckland Council. The proposed Congestion Free Network is promoted as being cheaper, more effective at reducing travel times, better integrated into the social fabric of the city and achievable by 2030. Generation Zero also runs a similar campaign in the capital, Fast Forward Wellington.
