This note is not part of the order, but is intended to indicate its general effect.
This order, which comes into force on 1 August 2015, amends the Land Transport Management (Road Tolling Scheme for ALPURT B2) Order 2005 (the principal order). The principal order establishes a road tolling scheme for ALPURT B2, which is a 7.5 km northern motorway extension between Albany and Puhoi that was completed in 2009. ALPURT B2 is more commonly known as the Northern Gateway, and the name of the order is changed to reflect this.
Clauses 5 to 8 of the principal order are revoked because they are spent (they relate to prerequisites for commencing tolling).
Clauses 9 to 17 of the principal order deal with the setting, publication, and collection of tolls, and information disclosure about the road tolling scheme. These clauses are replaced in order to align the road tolling scheme for the Northern Gateway with the road tolling schemes for the Tauranga Eastern Link and Takitimu Drive (Route K), which are established under the following instruments:
The main differences between the new clauses and old clauses 9 to 17 relate to—
the method of rounding that the New Zealand Transport Agency (the Agency) must use when calculating the maximum tolls that it may set:
the method the Agency must use to publicise information about the tolling scheme:
the information about the road tolling scheme that the Agency must disclose to the Minister of Transport and the public.
Date of notification in Gazette: 2 July 2015.
This order is administered by the Ministry of Transport.
