People favour fuel levy over other charges - Phil Goff

From Morning Report, 8:12 am on 27 October 2017

Incoming Transport minister Phil Twyford has told Morning Report a charge of 10 cents per litre of fuel in Auckland would help fund the coalition's plan to build a $15 billion transport project over the next decade. But some Auckland drivers are upset that they'll be paying for a transit system that they won't actually get to use.

Auckland Mayor Phil Goff tells us public feedback shows Aucklanders would prefer a fuel levy rather than other types of tolls or charges.
