    Questions from the Automobile Association over government strategy for the tolling of new roads

    Questions from the Automobile Association over government strategy for the tolling of new roads


    The Transport Agency's proposing the Puhoi to Warkworth motorway, north of Auckland, be tolled when it opens - and the speed limit be dropped on the free route.

    AA spokesperson Barney Irvine says the organisation's open to the idea of tolls on new roads - but more information's needed before it will support the toll proposal.

    He says many people won't like it if the government intends introducing tolls on all new roads.

    Irvine also questions why a toll is only being proposed now, when construction began in 2016.
