Annual General Meeting
Our AGM this year will be held on Thursday 14th July 2016, 7:30pm at the Garden Room, Richmond Road Community Centre, 510 Richmond Road, Grey Lynn.
Our special guest this year is transport economist and Green MP Julie Anne Genter. We will confirm further details closer to the date, but in the meantime pencil this in your diary.
As we are well into the new financial year it is time to renew your existing membership or support us by joining or donating. As advocates for better transport in Auckland, the more members we have the stronger our voice is to local and central Government.
Annual membership fees are only $20, or $10 unwaged – although additional donations are always appreciated! We are a completely voluntary incorporated society and we have no salaried positions, so any money we receive is simply to cover costs.
You can sign up on line , or simply make a payment using the following details:
- Bank – Kiwibank
- Account Number – 38-9009-0281735-00
- Reference – Your Name
Our focus is on North Shore Rail. This might seem a long way off into the future, but central Government’s Transport Agency is already starting the notice of requirement process for a $4bn – $6bn road only crossing. To put it bluntly, this must be stopped. With a benefit cost ratio of 0.4, it is inexplicable that $27m has been budgeted by the NZTA to continue with designation work for a tolled crossing.
