Congestion charging will play a critical role in Aotearoa New Zealand’s transition to a decarbonisted transport system, and help us to reach our net zero goals. But how can congestion charging be applied to ensure equitable outcomes, so that our most vulnerable or overlooked members of society do not shoulder the majority of the cost? In this webinar, Te Ara Matatika | The Fair Path author Holly Walker, and WSP congestion charging experts, examine the implications of congestion charging, the environmental, social and economic factors to consider, and international case studies that could inform New Zealand’s approach.
