The $390m Penlink Project is fully consented and ‘ready to go'. However with no funding, a construction start is still unconfirmed -  a start could be another 10 years under current plans. Meanwhile the congestion you face gets worse by the day as more and more houses are built.  Silverdale and Whangaparaoa businesses therefore struggle to take advantage of Auckland’s booming growth.

What we need to do now is make a submission on your behalf to Auckland Council’s 2017/18 Annual Plan and transport programme, urging Auckland Council and Central Government to bring forward the scheduled 2026 start date for Penlink to 2017/18. So please take this short survey and leave your details.

* 1. Where do you reside?

* 2. If you are a daily commuter, how much worse has local congestion got in the 10 years that the Penlink project has been awaiting funding?

EXTREMELY WORSE
i We adjusted the number you entered based on the slider’s scale.

* 3. Do you agree to the Chamber making a submission on your behalf to Auckland Council’s 2017/18 Annual Plan and transport programme urging Auckland Council to bring forward the scheduled 2026 start date for Penlink to 2017/18?

* 4. Noting that Penlink has been planned as a private-public partnership, do you support the Chamber campaign aimed at encouraging private sector investor’s to join forces with Auckland Council and central Government to help pay for and build Penlink within seven years or sooner?

* 5. Penlink has been planned as a toll road that will save around 15 minutes per trip in peak hours for Peninsula commuters and free up local Silverdale-Orewa roads. What would you be prepared to pay in tolls on Penlink each way in peak hours?

* 6. Do you agree that no more new housing developments should commence in the Silverdale-Wainui-Whangaparaoa area until Penlink’s construction start is assured?
