Feasibility report into passenger rail service on West Coast of South Island

Nick Farlow made this Official Information request to KiwiRail

This request has an unknown status. We're waiting for Nick Farlow to read recent responses and update the status.

From: Nick Farlow

Dear KiwiRail,

On 20 July 2018 the Government announced that $250,000 from the Provincial Growth Fund would be used to investigate the feasibility of a passenger rail service on the West Coast of the South Island, between Westport and Hokitika.

Given that this announcement was made almost 18 months ago I assume that the report would now be complete. Please provide a copy of the feasibility report.

Yours faithfully,

Nick Farlow

Good afternoon Nick

 

I refer to your official information request dated 13 January 2020, for a
copy of the feasibility report into the passenger service on the West
Coast of the South Island, between Hokitika and Westport

 

The OIA requires that we advise you of our decision on your request no
later than 20 working days after the day we received your request.
Unfortunately, it will not be possible to meet that time limit and we are
therefore writing to notify you of an extension of the time to make our
decision, to 30 March 2020.

 

This extension is necessary because we are required to consult with an
external party, and as such that a proper response is unable be made
within the original time limit.

 

You have the right to seek an investigation and review by the Ombudsman of
this decision. Information about how to make a complaint is available at
www.ombudsman.parliament.nz or freephone 0800 802 602.

 

If you wish to discuss any aspect of your request with us, including this
decision, please feel free to contact me at this email address.

 

Kind regards
