Wakely Track work

Aurélien de la Schlucht made this Official Information request to Wellington City Council

This request has an unknown status. We're waiting for Aurélien de la Schlucht to read recent responses and update the status.

From: Aurélien de la Schlucht

Dear Wellington City Council,

According to your page https://www.transportprojects.org.nz/cur... Wakely Track (length ~ 1500m) has now been closed for construction for over half a year. It's been almost two years since this was approved for the first time.

Please supply all of these since 1 January 2017 for Wakely Track:
* meetings including minutes and participants -- for any WCC people below senior level feel free to list a senior person who they report to instead.
* plans
* tenders
* quotes
* contracts
* communication
* phone calls (numbers, participants, date, time, duration, documentation)
* work progress reports
* a calendar with all business days marked as either:
** status unknown
** work not started
** work being done
** process related waiting (e.g. for concrete to cure)
** waiting for contractors to return

For background, rumour has it that since September 2017
* WCC went back on its decision to pave Wakely
* The electricity company which runs the power lines along it graded the track, according to a worker on site
* WCC decided to gravel the track

As these are no more than rumours, can you please confirm or deny each of these?

How was the decision made at the time to leave the track as is?

How was the decision made to gravel the track, rather than paving it, or leaving it?

Who are the contractors working on the track this year? How was each company chosen?

Is any signage or other communication planned to inform people of their new transport choice?
If so, what in detail?
If not, why not?

What is the goal under which WCC is doing this upgrade?
How was the goal determined?

Kia ora Wellington City Council,

Just a small number of things I forgot. Thanks.

What was the projected construction cost for the gravel option?
What's the projected annual maintenance cost for the gravel option?
What was the initially projected construction time for the gravel option?
Are you expecting that the projected costs will be the actual cost? If not, why not?

What was the projected construction cost for the tar seal option?
What's the projected annual maintenance cost for the tar seal option?
What was the projected construction time for the tar seal option?

Please include sources, reasons, meeting minutes etc for all of the above.

At some point the signs at the track ends said it'd be done in May 2019. Then they were stickered over, replacing May with July. How did this come about? Again please includes reasons, communication, etc pp.

What is the current projected opening day?
How has this been determined?
What risks exist for this? Please list with probability and impact.

Is an opening celebration planned? If so, how are you going to advertise it?

Ngā mihi
