Congestion charge for Onewa Road?
The NZ Parliament is currently consulting on a proposal for congestion charges for Auckland. Submissions can be made online and close on Thursday 20 May 2021.
Parliament are wanting to know your views on different congestion charge options, such as when entering the city centre, or using "strategic corridors". They are proposing to start rolling out these charges when the City Rail Link opens.
To me it appears from the attached map that Parliament are suggesting that the lower North Shore could be included in Phase 1 (2025) or Phase 2 (2028) of the roll-out. Does that mean that they are proposing congestion charges for Onewa Road and Lake Road (Takapuna/Devonport)?
Please have your say on whether or not you support being charged to travel to/from the city centre, and to use "strategic corridors" which may include Onewa Road and Lake Road.

Auckland Transport have confirmed that there will be 17 "transit lane zones" that will be monitored by cameras - 9 heading towards the city and 8 heading towards Birkenhead.

Each zone will contain one unit of 4 cameras, making a total of 68 cameras on Onewa Road!

Each unit includes:
* 1x scene camera (monitors whether the vehicle travelled the whole zone; sometimes it will also look at the transit lane sign for evidential purposes)
* 1x sign camera to monitor the transit lane sign if the scene camera cannot see the sign (in some instances this may be mounted on a street light pole opposite the unit)
* One relocatable pole mounted camera housing, containing:
- 1x side occupant camera (looks at the side of the vehicle to determine how many occupants are in the car)
- 1x front occupant camera (looks at the car approaching the unit, collects number plate details, and also confirms occupants in front seats).

This week Auckland Transport have been investigating sites on the City to Birkenhead side of the road for transit lane cameras.

Meanwhile, we should be hearing from Auckland Transport on the results of the clearway consultation around May.
