Aucklanders could be charged to drive in to the city to combat the increasing gridlock commuters face. With traffic forecasts predicting a grim future for drivers in the city, the Government and Auckland Council are looking at ways ease the daily commuting pain. A report titled The Congestion Question will be presented to the council planning committee on Tuesday. The report doesn’t paint a pretty picture, saying an average motorway trip takes 10 percent longer that it did four years ago, and motorists need to allow 40 to 55 percent longer for trips. Severe congestion is expected to increase by 30 percent at peak hours and 38 percent between the rush hour times. “This means Aucklanders’ access to jobs, education and other opportunities will become more difficult,” the reports says.
