The information you requested - CAS-1153542-F1Y0C2
Thank you for your email dated 11 September 2019 requesting information regarding Static ANPR
Cameras in Auckland.
How many Static ANPR cameras are currently active in Auckland, this is not including
patrol cars that have been fitted with ANPR cameras
Auckland Transport (AT) has 72 static cameras utilising ANPR functionality active in Auckland.
What are the location of the Static ANPR cameras
I attach a PDF document called “CCTV_ ANPR only” which outlines a list of CCTV ANPR cameras
and their GPS location. How often are the Static ANPR cameras calibrated / when was their last calibration
Camera calibration is not required because AT uses ANPR Video Analytics Software at the back
end. Each location where a camera uses ANPR is configured and set-up for that specific camera
scene. This is tested using ground truth testing.
How long is data retained that is gathered by the static ANPR cameras
AT uses ANPR to:
• measure vehicle journey times and manage the road network
This data enables AT to manage traffic congestion by analysing trends, make informed
optimisation decisions, and influence road user behaviour with real-time information.
Any licence plate data that is captured via ANPR cameras and used for the purpose of vehicle
journey times, is first anonymised prior to being stored on AT systems. The data is currently
kept indefinitely to be used for data analysis and reporting purposes.
• capture unauthorised vehicles using bus lanes
When an unauthorised vehicle has used a bus lane and an infringement has occurred, the
analytics on the ANPR cameras are triggered to record the infringing vehicle at three points as
evidence of the infringement. As a statutory legal requirement, this data is kept for seven years.
All other CCTV footage from bus lane enforcement cameras is stored for seven days in line
with AT’s CCTV storage policy.
Should you believe that we have not dealt with your request appropriately, you are able to make a
complaint to the Office of the Ombudsman and seek an investigation and review in regard to this
