We asked each of the main political parties whether they supported a toll-free SkyPath…
Labour, NZ First and the Green Party say they support a toll-free SkyPath (ie: publicly funded per usual State Highway investment by Government).
National says it prefers tolling SkyPath (to fund the PPP delivery model estimated to cost $248 million over 25 years) but if that isn’t viable they could consider funding SkyPath as part of a future Urban Cycleways Programme.
We explained to National why the PPP is no longer viable, however we haven’t heard back from yet. We’d really like them to get on board with the only logical solution… a toll-free SkyPath.
