Modified Auckland Transport Statement of Intent 2014-2017

 

File No.: CP2014/27151

 

††

Purpose

1.†††††† To agree the modified Auckland Transport Statement of Intent for 2014-2017 as a result of the Finance and Performance Committee resolution to reduce Auckland Transport council funded capital expenditure by $100 million in 2014/2015.

Executive Summary

2.†††††† At the 21 August 2014 Finance and Performance Committee, it was resolved to reduce Auckland Transportís 2014/2015 council funded capital expenditure by $100 million.

3.†††††† Taking into account priority for public transport, ring-fenced projects and commitments, the Auckland Transport Board has agreed on a revised capital programme for 2014/2015 incorporating the $100 million reduction.

4.†††††† This reduces the total capital programme from $833 million to $733 million.

5.†††††† As a result of the change, Auckland Transport have modified their Statement of Intent 2014-2017 (SOI).

6.†††††† Auckland Council is subsequently required to agree the modified SOI.

7.†††††† Auckland Transport are in discussion with the NZTransport Agency (NZTA) to maintain the level of capital funding at existing levels to mitigate any further reduction from the revised $733 million 2014/2015 total capital expenditure.

 

Recommendation/s

That the Council Controlled Organisations Governance and Monitoring Committee:

a)††††† agree the modified Auckland Transport Statement of Intent 2014-2017

b)††††† note the intention of Auckland Transport to maintain NZTA capital funding at the existing levels for 2014/2015.

 

 

Discussion

8.†††††† In May 2014, the Budget Committee requested that the council group look to reduce the rate funded 2014/2015 capital expenditure by $300 million and report back to the Finance and Performance Committee.

9.†††††† At the 21 August 2014 meeting, the Finance and Performance Committee agreed to a reduction or deferral of $100 million of council funded Auckland Transport capital expenditure for 2014/2015.

10.†††† Auckland Transport have reviewed the Annual Plan 2014/2015 $833 million capital expenditure to the achieve the $100 million reduction with consideration of:

i)††† ring-fenced projects such as City Rail Link† ($69m) and the Local Board Transport Capital Fund ($10m)

ii)†† committed projects such as EMUs ($215m), Albany Highway ($17m), AMETI ($30m), and NORSGA ($22m)

iii)†† priority for public transport

iv)† requirements outlined in the final year of NZTAís Regional Transport Plan

v)†† the Long-term Plan 2015-2025.

11.†††† Priority has been given to public transport with a 7% reduction compared to 20% in roading. The following table outlines the reduction from $833 million to $733 million:

12.†††† Examples of individual projects impacted are:

i)††† Dominion Road has been put on hold while the scope of the project is re-examined. This project remains a high priority in order to alleviate peak-hour congestion and enable improvements to public transport services

ii)†† AMETI has seen a large budget reduction (from $72 million to $35.5 million). This decision reflects the assumption that the Reeves Road Flyover will require Environment Court Hearing.

13.†††† The reduction of $100 million would have resulted in an approximate $50 million consequential loss of NZTA capital funding, and further reduction to the total capital programme. Auckland Transport are in discussions with NZTA to maintain capital funding at the existing levels for 2014/2015.

14.†††† This would result in no change to 2014/2015 NZTA capital funding and any further reduction to the $733 million total capital expenditure.

15.†††† Performance measures agreed in the previous SOI remain unchanged.

Consideration

Local Board Views and Implications

16.†††† Local Boards have been engaged about the impacts of near-term and longer term Council budget information through clustered workshops in May and through October to November.

17.†††† In addition, there have been individual Local Board discussions in November and December.

Maori Impact Statement

18.†††† This does not specifically impact Māori outcomes and well-being.
