    John Tamihere is promising to scrap Auckland's regional fuel tax if he's elected the city's mayor

    John Tamihere is promising to scrap Auckland's regional fuel tax if he's elected the city's mayor


    Tamihere says his ambitious new two-storey harbour bridge can be paid for through existing transport budgets, without the need for a fuel tax.

    He says the bridge also won't cost 10-billion dollars as his rival Phil Goff has suggested.

    Tamihere says he will also prioritise other traffic choke points, and seek private investment for new park and ride facilities.
