Status mode choice for A2B?

Nicholas Lee made this Official Information request to New Zealand Transport Agency

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

From: Nicholas Lee

Dear New Zealand Transport Agency,

Please provide information on the Airport 2 Botany project (A2B):

What is the current preferred mode - BRT or LRT?

# If LRT,

1) What sections require route protection? And what work has been done to protect the route?
2) Has planning been done for future depot locations?

# If BRT.

3) What type of BRT mode is planned? Fare zone stations, low entry buses? Or simple standard AT buses with (some) separated lane.
4) What sections require route protection?
5) Is LRT still part of a future consideration for the A2B route?
6) If LRT is not part of future consideration. Why?
7) If BRT now and LRT in the future, see the question 1+2) in this context. ie. Is additional work being done to protect the route for LRT.

# More generally.

8) Are there any specific challenges for the above.
I note that Puhinui is a narrow road corridor with limited capacity to expand without property purchases. How about the sections of the route in Manukau City? Crossing SH1? Others?

9) What work has been done to scope challenges for LRT on the A2B route?

Cycleways:

What work is being done to provide a grade separated cycling path along the A2B route?

Yours faithfully,

Nicholas Lee
