Auckland Transport Statement of Intent amendment to forecast financial statements

File No.: CP2024/01108

 

  

 

Te take mō te pūrongo

Purpose of the report

1.       To modify Auckland Transport’s Statement of Intent (SOI) to include forecast financial statements as requested by Audit New Zealand.

Whakarāpopototanga matua

Executive summary

2.       In 2019, an amendment to the Local Government Act (2002) (The Act) required additional financial information to be included in the SOIs of council-controlled organisations (CCO), In addition to the forecast income statement, the SOIs should also have included a balance sheet, statement of cash flow and statement of movements in equity.

3.       The Transport and Infrastructure Committee approved Auckland Transport’s Statement of Intent 2023 - 2026 in August last year (TICCC/2023/87). Audit New Zealand’s auditors raised a compliance issue in late-2023 for Eke Panuku and Tātaki Auckland Unlimited.

4.       As this affects all CCOs a group approach has been adopted. To ensure that they are not in breach of the Act, CCOs have been asked to amend their Statement of Intent.

5.       The Board of Auckland Transport has approved the required amendments to Auckland Transport’s SOI (refer Section 2.8, pages 31-34).

6.       The modified SOI for Auckland Transport is provided as Attachment A. The approval of these modifications is recommended to comply with the requirements of The Act.  These modifications do not make any substantive change to the SOI.

Recommendation/s

That the Transport and Infrastructure Committee:

a)      whakaae / approve the amended Auckland Transport Statement of Intent to include the provided financial statements.

Auckland Transport six month (quarter two) performance report 2023/2024

File No.: CP2024/00905

 

  

 

Te take mō te pūrongo

Purpose of the report

1.       To receive a summary of, and comments on, Auckland Transport’s six-month performance (second quarter, Q2) report, for the period ending 31 December 2023 and consider key issues and risks.

Whakarāpopototanga matua

Executive summary

2.       Auckland Transport’s report for the second quarter of 2023/2024 (refer Attachment A) provides highlights, and reporting on finance, performance measures and work programmes through to 31 December 2023. The reporting period does not cover recent government decisions on Regional Fuel Tax and Auckland Light Rail, or long-term plan consultation decisions. It also does not include the current issues relating to rail reliability.

3.       Staff have reviewed the performance report. The focus of this report is on the key issues and risks.

4.       Auckland Transport's operating result, excluding depreciation, is $23 million better than budgeted for the half-year. The second quarter shows continued positive revenue and expenditure trends similar to Quarter One (Q1). Public transport income continued to exceed budget and performance targets, mainly attributed to higher bus patronage. However, there is a notable shortfall in parking and enforcement revenue, primarily because of lower occupancy rates and delayed parking tariff increases. Auckland Transport has acknowledged this issue in the report and there are initiatives underway to enhance parking revenue and mitigate its impact on the overall year-end financial position.

5.       Capital expenditure for the half-year is $417 million, representing 87 per cent of the planned spend. Auckland Transport expects that the full-year expenditure for projects currently behind will align with the annual budget.

6.       Auckland Transport has 19 SOI measures. AT’s performance overall has improved since Q1, with 13 performance measures now meeting or exceeded targets, four were below target and two were not measured or reported on.  Public transport boardings continue to improve and were 41.8 million, 85 per cent of pre-COVID-19 pandemic levels. This improvement is largely driven by bus patronage which is at 93 per cent pre COVID-19 levels (64 per cent for train boardings and 77 per cent for ferry boardings). Train boardings reflect the eastern line closures and continue to warrant monitoring. To December 2023, total cycle movements across our counters were 12.6 per cent higher than the same period in the previous year.

7.       Programme delivery and performance against Auckland Transport’s strategic priorities is more mixed, with 18 deliverables out of 43 having a ‘watch’ status. Significant concerns remain about asset condition, road maintenance, congestion and road network performance.

8.       The Independent Māori Statutory Board (IMSB) Treaty Audit Monitoring Report (CP2024/00015) to the 19 February Audit and Risk Committee highlighted that the 2021 recommendation relating to the development and monitoring of Achieving Māori Outcome Plans has not been met and is overdue. Council is waiting for Auckland Transport to submit its Achieving Māori Outcome Plan. Staff recommend that Auckland Transport be asked to provide a Māori Outcomes Plan by June 2024.

 

Ngā tūtohunga

Recommendation/s

That the Transport and Infrastructure Committee:

a)      whiwhi / receive Auckland Transport’s 2023/2024 second quarter report (Attachment A).

b)      tono / request Auckland Transport to provide their Achieving Māori Outcomes Plan to council by June 2024.

 

Horopaki

Context

9.       Auckland Transport must provide a quarterly report to the Transport and Infrastructure Committee. They are required to:

·    summarise the CCO’s performance against the approved budget and agreed targets in the 10-year Budget and SOI.

·    provide a forecast of the CCO’s performance.

·    identify the cause of major variances.

·    highlight major achievements for the quarter.

·    signal any potential or developing issues.

10.     Auckland Transport will report on the Department of Internal Affairs mandatory measures and Auckland’s transport emissions annually.

Tātaritanga me ngā tohutohu

Analysis and advice

 

Financial performance

11.     Auckland Transport's operating result excluding depreciation is $23 million better than budgeted for the half-year.

12.     The second quarter shows continued positive revenue and expenditure trends like Q1. Public transport income continued to exceed budget attributed to higher bus patronage. However, there is a notable shortfall in parking and enforcement revenue, primarily because of lower occupancy rates and delayed parking tariff increases. Auckland Transport has acknowledged this issue in the report and there are several initiatives underway to enhance parking revenue and mitigate its impact on the overall year-end financial position.

13.     Capital expenditure for the half-year is $417 million, representing 87 per cent of the planned spend. This is primarily due to timing differences between the actual project delivery and the budget phasing. Auckland Transport expects that the full-year expenditure for projects currently behind will align with the annual budget.

Non-financial performance and other issues

Performance measures

14.     Overall, Auckland Transport has met or exceeded 13 performance measures, four were below target and two were not measured or reported on.  The table below sets out a summary of Q2 and Q1 performance results and notes the key changes.

17.     Over half of Auckland Transport programmes/deliverables are on track. No definition is provided of what ‘Watch” means and clarification has been sought from Auckland Transport at the time of writing. Key deliverables identified as being on watch are discussed below.

Better understanding of communities

18.     Auckland Transport’s deliverable to develop a set of exemplar journeys has a ‘Watch’ status.  The selected journeys are primarily car based and while the levels of service are good on these routes, the comparative journeys for public transport and customer experience are being further investigated. It would be useful to consider in this mix whether an opportunity exists for active modes, such as a safe cycle/ebike ride or walking.

Getting the basics right

19.     Nearly half of these programmes have a ‘Watch’ status. Of topical interest is the way Auckland Transport responds to disruptions (2.03), asset maintenance and safety investment (2.04). Without a definition of what ‘Watch’ refers to, it is difficult to comment on what the key issues are for these work programmes and how they relate to the improvements experienced in the key performance measures for these areas.

20.     Deliverable 2.09 – Minimise the impact of disruption on the road corridor – Auckland Transport note that evidence of behaviour change is evident with smaller sized work sites being requested in response to the updated fee schedule for Road Corridor Access. This is a positive outcome.

21.     Deliverable 2.10 – Work towards the Transport Emissions Reduction Plan - Auckland Transport note some positive progress, including developing a Sustainability Strategy. However, resourcing issues are slowing this down. It will be important to monitor this over the coming quarters.

Leveraging our existing network

22.     Progress is being made on the investigating dynamic lanes with public consultation feedback being provided to local boards in March for Great North Road and Maioro Street.

23.     Deliverable 3.03 - National ticketing – this project is progressing well. Auckland Transport is discussing funding options with New Zealand Transport Agency (NZTA) around how the operational costs associated with early integration and the National Ticketing System transition can potentially be spread. These costs have not been allowed for in the draft Long-term Plan.

24.     Deliverable 3.03 – Urban cycleways - cycle count numbers were up in this quarter, with 1.6 million cycling trips exceeding the trajectory of 1.4 million trips. Recent government policy decisions and funding reductions will impact on the delivery of this programme.

25.     Deliverable 3.06 – City Rail Link (CRL). The performance of CRL is the subject of separate reports on this agenda.

Collaboration and improving relationships

26.     Auckland Transport are developing and trialling new engagement approaches with local boards and the community. Improvements are reflected in the key performance measures for “A better understanding of the communities we serve”.

Delivering capital programme

27.     Four programmes have a ‘watch’ status, reflecting the challenges being experienced by Auckland Transport with changes to central government policy and a fiscally constrained environment, with high inflation impacting on delivery costs.

Tauākī whakaaweawe āhuarangi

Climate impact statement

28.     Auckland Transport’s total operational emissions (1,687 tCO2e) represent almost 48 per cent reduction compared to the respective quarter of the base year 2018/19.

29.     Auckland Transport will report on Auckland’s transport emissions in quarter four.

Ngā whakaaweawe me ngā tirohanga a te rōpū Kaunihera

Council group impacts and views

30.     Auckland Transport’s Q2 performance report contains information on how it is contributing to the council’s outcomes and objectives.

Ngā whakaaweawe ā-rohe me ngā tirohanga a te poari ā-rohe

Local impacts and local board views

31.     Oversight, monitoring and direction of Auckland Transport is delegated to this committee. The views of local boards have not been sought. Auckland Transport reports to local boards directly.

Tauākī whakaaweawe Māori

Māori impact statement

32.     Auckland Transport has provided information on their mana whenua engagement and activations across the network in their report. As at Q1, they have not met their target of increasing percentage of procurement spend with Māori owned businesses. This is still in the order of 1 per cent ($7.35 million in direct and subcontracted spend).

33.     The IMSB Treaty Audit Monitoring Report (CP2024/00015) to the 19 February Audit and Risk Committee highlighted that the 2021 recommendation relating to the development and monitoring of Achieving Māori Outcome Plans has not been met and is overdue. Council is waiting for Auckland Transport to submit its Achieving Māori Outcome Plan. Staff recommend that Auckland Transport be asked to provide an Achieving Māori Outcomes Plan by June 2024.

Financial implications

34.     Auckland Transport’s financial performance is provided in paragraphs 11 to 13.

Ngā raru tūpono me ngā whakamaurutanga

Risks and mitigations

35.     Auckland Transport reported to the 19 February Audit and Risk Committee. Risks are noted in the discussion section and paragraph 32.

Ngā koringa ā-muri

Next steps

36.     The next quarterly report (quarter three, January to March 2024) will be provided to this committee in May 2024. Auckland Transport will continue to provide monthly updates.

Review of the Forward Work Programme - Transport and Infrastructure Committee

File No.: CP2024/00897

 

  

Te take mō te pūrongo

Purpose of the report

1.       To arotake / review and tuhi / note progress on the 2024 Transport and Infrastructure Committee forward work programme appended as Attachment A of the agenda report.

Whakarāpopototanga matua

Executive summary

2.       The forward work programme for the Transport and Infrastructure Committee was adopted by the committee at its meeting held on 16 March 2023 (Resolution number TICCC/2023/35) and reviewed on 21 September 2023 (Resolution number TICCC/2023/105). 

3.       It was agreed that the forward work programme would be reported for information and reviewed on a six-monthly basis.

4.       All committees have been requested to review their forward work programme, by the end of March 2024.

5.       Following approval, all committee forward work programmes will be reported to the Governing Body in April and October each year, for oversight as per the Terms of Reference.

6.       The current forward work programme for the Transport and Infrastructure Committee is appended as Attachment A.

7.       Specific amendments have been made since the last review, as follows:

·    items that do not require a committee decision have not been included in this report and will be communicated via briefings or memos.

·    any new additions will be highlighted in red text.

·    any deletions will be shown in strikethrough.

8.       The current forward work programme reflects known decision points and plans for the committee at this time.

10.     Staff anticipate some timelines and programmes will need to be adjusted frequently to respond to central government direction and expect the forward work programme to change to reflect these changes.

11.     Following the approval of the forward work programme, it will be reported to the Governing Body, for oversight as per the Terms of Reference.

City Rail Link Maungawhau development update

File No.: CP2024/01769

 

  

Te take mō te pūrongo

Purpose of the report

1.       To note that there is a confidential report contained in the confidential section of this meeting.

Whakarāpopototanga matua

Executive summary

2.       In February 2023 the Governing Body, as the Auckland Council CRL Project Sponsors, approved the development outcomes and development approach for the Maungawhau development programme. The Governing Body also delegated decision-making to negotiate and conclude development agreements to the Eke Panuku Board.

3.       The Minster of Transport and Minister of Finance, as the Crown CRL Project Sponsors, approved the same recommendations through signed letters in July 2023.

4.       There are 11 development sites within the Maungawhau development programme.

5.       A number of these development projects are ready to progress to formal development proposals once a lot/title plan and any development constraints are provided by CRL Limited. These development projects include with the Whenua Haumi Roroa o Tāmaki Makaurau Limited Partnership for the three sites subject to rights of first refusal, with Vector for a sub-station on part of a site and with Kāinga Ora for two sites earmarked as social housing opportunities.

6.       The two key areas affecting progress are the provision of a lot/title plan and any constraints to development from CRLL and confirming the legal mechanism to transact.

7.       An executive group of CRL Limited and Eke Panuku has been re-established to ensure lot/title and development constraint information is provided in a timely manner to enable development projects to proceed.

8.       Detailed information, including commercially confidential information is included in the report on the confidential agenda.
