Green Party transport spokeswoman Julie Anne Genter says the party will kick off a new campaign on Saturday for a "transformative public transport project" involving a second harbour crossing to the North Shore.

"We'll be launching a campaign asking Aucklanders to speak up once again for better public transport, for a clean-energy, affordable and fast rail link to the North Shore," says Ms Genter.

Auckland currently does not have any rail services on the North Shore and has one harbour bridge.
