This request has an unknown status. We're waiting for Adam Parkinson to read a recent response and update the status.

From: Adam Parkinson

Dear Auckland Transport,
Pursuant to the Local Government Official Information and Meetings Act, I am requesting the latest traffic data survey and key findings from Wynyard Quarter (WQ) monitoring surveys.
The Resource Consent for Wynyard Quarter set a target of a 30:70 mode split by 2020, where single occupancy private vehicle trips represent no more than 30% of the overall trips to and from Wynyard Quarter, and where the remaining 70% of all journeys are made by sustainable modes.
The vehicle ceiling targets set for the area in the District Plan aimed to reduce the number of single occupancy vehicles at peak times.
The split is also put into Plan Change 4 in the Unitary Plan, rather than being just a target Auckland Transport (AT) might aim for.
Trip generation ceiling targets were specified in the Plans and are linked to the extent and timing of development permitted in WQ.

BACKGROUND

Section I214.11 of the Auckland Unitary Plan identifies objectives so that Wynyard Quarter can be developed in a sustainable manner. In order to meet these objectives, the Unitary Plan has various policies and methods specifically related to Wynyard Quarter. This includes the monitoring of traffic effects both internal and external to WQ, with a methodology specified in I214.11.1 Appendix 1: Methodology for Undertaking Traffic Generation Surveys in Wynyard Quarter.
Appendix 1 also sets out the objective sand general description of data required. The methodology includes survey dates and times, buildings to be surveyed and the survey intervals.
In order to ensure that existing road infrastructure is capable of accommodating the proposed development associated with WQ, trip generation ceiling targets are specified in Section I214.8.2 of the Unitary Plan. These ceiling targets are for vehicles to and from Wynyard Quarter from all activities.

The scheduling of these surveys are referenced in Appendix 1 Objectives:
To confirm the vehicle traffic generated by the office buildings in Wynyard (a)Quarter during the morning and evening peak period as surveyed in 2009:
On a 6-monthly basis for two years following the date that Plan Change 4 (i) becomes operative; and thereafter, ANNUALLY.

Noting that there is a requirement for annual surveys, I request a copy of the data from annual Surveys undertaken from 2012 to 2019 by, or on behalf of, Auckland Transport.
I understand such surveys have been undertaken by Flow Transportation Specialists on behalf of Auckland Transport in the form of a Technical Note report that also compares data going back to 2012. I have a copy of the May 2017 report.

If that is still currently the case, then only a copy of the most recent annual survey (2019?), would most likely contain the additional 2018 & 2109 information required, if it includes the comparative annual data back to 2012.

Yours faithfully,
Adam Parkinson

Hi Adam,

I am sincerely apologetic for the time already taken.
It has come to my attention that the 2017 & 2018 reports have been made
public. Can you please review the below link and see if this satisfies
your request. 
[1]https://www.wqtma.co.nz/plansandreports

From my understanding; there was a recent change to the way the 2019
report is being run and because of this change, because of this change,
the report has not been finalized.

Please let me know if you would like to discuss further.
