Axing the Auckland fuel tax reveals the lack of a real transport plan for NZ’s biggest city

Retrieved on: 
Tuesday, February 13, 2024

Pulling the plug seems less about the cost of living or misuse of tax revenue than simply sweeping clear the previous administration’s legislation.

Key Points: 
  • Pulling the plug seems less about the cost of living or misuse of tax revenue than simply sweeping clear the previous administration’s legislation.
  • Transport policies, plans and projects have fallen at an astonishing speed since the coalition government was formed.
  • As the new government took office, transport agency Waka Kotahi quickly announced a freeze on cycling, walking and public transport projects.

Cost of living or climate

  • The tax also funded road safety initiatives, road corridor improvements, bus and cycle lanes, red light cameras and speed humps.
  • These were all clearly listed in the fuel tax legislation – and are clearly needed: Auckland road deaths hover around 50 people per year.
  • Read more:
    A short history of doomed second harbour crossing proposals for Auckland – and a quicker, cheaper option

    Instead, the official rationalisation for ending the ARFT has centred on the cost of living.

  • On top of removing the clean car discount, this makes low-emitting vehicles less competitive on price.

Failure to plan

  • This includes previous governments, National and Labour alike, which have failed to lock in sustainable forward planning.
  • As the adage goes, failing to plan is planning to fail.
  • Read more:
    70 years of road-based policies created today's problems – does National’s transport plan add up?
  • Decades of see-sawing government priorities mean New Zealand’s biggest and most economically important city has no clear plan to transition out of its fossil fuel dependence.
