Detailed information on the operations of the Northern Gateway Toll Road for the period from 1 July 2009 to 30 June 2010 is now available in a report published today by the NZ Transport Agency.
The toll road’s first 12-monthly operating report shows that just over five million trips were made on the road during the year, four percent higher than forecast, bringing the total number of journeys since the toll road opened in January 2009 to just under seven million.
NZTA Regional Director for Auckland and Northland Wayne McDonald said the higher than forecast traffic volumes had contributed to greater than expected revenue collection, with paid toll revenue 4% ahead of budget.
Key results for the 12 months to 30 June 2010 include:
Mr McDonald said several changes had been introduced to improve services for toll road customers during the 12 month period, including extending the toll payment period from three to five days and upgrading the payment website for easier use.
