The government has been looking at the best option for rapid transit from the city to airport via Dominon Road, Mount Roskill, Onehunga & Māngere.
This project needs to be about connecting communities, not just about speed from the city to the airport. It needs the mum in Mount Roskill to be able to get to childcare and then work in Onehunga, or to help the student in Māngere to get to music lessons down Dominion Road.
We are advocating for a street level Light Rail (LRT) option for Dominion Road rather than a Light Metro (grade separated) option.
Street level Light Rail will be more accessible and safer for everyone, not to mention cheaper and quicker to build than Light Metro. Choosing this option will avoid a whole lot of accessibility issues in the future.
Street level LRT still runs free of traffic, so that it’s quick, reliable and dependable. Regular people making regular day-to-day trips deserve dependable transport too - more so than people making niche express city-to-airport trips.
Scroll down to sign our petition for street level LRT (this will go to Minister Twyford), and to see our rationale.
WE WANT THIS:
