The project seeks to address traffic congestion for the next 130 years and realign the expenditure of motorway building into other areas.

Years 1-5
Microcar Public Transport introduced and solves traffic congestion for the next 30 years. A realignment of the Motorway projects for the next 30 years and new transportation prioritisation of funds into other areas (accessibility, reduced PT fees, cycle networks, walking etc). Nz/Auckland pioneering the development of this new form of public transport and significant reductions of carbon emissions.

Years 5-10
Autonomous cars commercialised with NZ leading testing/development. Microcar Public Transport expanded with population growth. Autonomous microcars enter the NZ road Nework. Autonomous microbus developed (various lengths from 4-8 people with versions for those with disabilities).

Years 10-20
Autonomous microcars and microbus Public Transport and phase out of full sized pilot driven bus network. Conversion of microcar PT to Autonomous microcar PT.

Years 20-30
Autonomous microcars and microbus Public Transport and phase out of train network (realigned for freight). A realignment of the Motorway projects for the next 100 years (due to efficiencies gained by fully Autonomous PT) and new transportation prioritisation of funds into other areas (accessibility, reduced PT fees, cycle networks, walking etc).

Years 30+
The reduction of privately owned vehicles. Transportation will be delivered on a user pays/needs basis with the appropriate vehicle being ordered for the appropriate circumstance (peak travel to from/work, city travel, intercity travel, manual override vehicles for independent situations). The customer need only focus of where and when they wish to go and an appropriate vehicle will be available for the task (in fact an intelligent motorway network will record your movements and provide transportation based on that). There will always be reasons for privately owned vehicles but they will no longer dictate massive expenditure on congestion.

Final Comment
While years 10+ may seem challenging, years 1-10 are now possible as there is a commercially available Narrow Track Electric Microcar (been available since 2006) as well as a very small number of Autonomous vehicles in the development pipeline.
