Len Brown’s war on cars enters the next phase – steal some of the road

Len Brown has no idea what a liveable city is…one thing is for sure it isn’t one where the road gets stolen to make more room for his stupid buses.

Bus lane fines in Auckland are on the increase as the city’s transport agency prepares to put in 24-hour bus corridors around the CBD.

Aucklanders handed over $2.3 million in bus lane penalties last year, 10 per cent up on the previous year and 18 per cent more than in 2013.

The $150 fines are often incurred when left-turning motorists inadvertently cross into the bus lane too early, and the Automobile Association (AA) says the new 24/7 lanes will catch more people out.

It’s calling for simpler rules and a reduction in the hefty fine.   Read more »

Government makes move against Len’s trains: double decker buses


More than 50 double-decker buses are to roll out across Auckland from this October to July next year, after a rule change to allow heavier vehicles on city streets.

That will provide the Super City with capacity to carry 5000 more bus passengers at peak times.

The rule change, announced by Transport Minister Simon Bridges this afternoon at Tauranga-based Kiwi Bus Builders, will allow double-deckers with up to 91 seats to run on city streets. Read more »

U-Turns getting fashionable amongst Greenies

The latest green taliban member to do a u-turn is Celia Wade-Brown, over light rail…which is far superior that silly train-sets that greenies are keen on.

The thing that amuses me is that these muppets continually think that no one will remember their previous positions.

Wellington Mayor Celia Wade-Brown’s support for a bigger and better bus rapid transit system through the city has left Greater Wellington Regional Council chairwoman Fran Wilde “gobsmacked”.

Ms Wade-Brown, who campaigned three years ago on a promise to push for light rail in Wellington, shifted her support towards the bus rapid transit system this week after a study showed light rail would cost $940 million.  Read more »

Nice upgrade in Onehunga

A friend of mine, was recently approached to collaborate with Auckland Transport and the Maungakiekie-Tamaki Local Board to create designs as part of the new transit centre at Onehunga.

This is a prime example of how community engagement can work and should be a model for further engagement in other communities. Amanda lives, works and plays in Onehunga, and is a real advocate for the area. The designs incorporate local historic landmarks, events personalities, past and present.

I reckon she did a real top job….they look great.

If you want some top design work done then contact Amanda.

Forget about the cats Gareth it is buses you need to worry about

via the tipline

Its the buses that are taking out all the Kiwi. This one has accounted for 75 alone, and the bugger is proud of it too:

Buses kill Kiwis

Clearly we need to ban all buses to protect our native environment. And don’t get me started on trains – if they are not taking out native species then it’s defenseless women in wheel chairs. Ban them.  Read more »
