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

From: G. M. Dover

Dear Auckland Transport,

I have noticed there are white cameras (that look like CCTV cameras) on a lot of new traffic light installations. I have also started noticing them on larger intersections such as at Highbrook Dr and Maurice Paykel Pl in East Tamaki, Auckland and many other locations.

1) What is the primary purpose of the cameras? Traffic CCTV, pedestrian CCTV, or ANPR (Automatic Number-Plate Recognition?
2) Who is the governing body for the footage?

Yours faithfully,

G. M. Dover

Dear Info (AT),

Many thanks for the response.

3) Does the footage get used to adjust traffic light phasings to improve traffic flow?
4) Are the video feeds available online?
5) What legislation needs to be followed in regards to privacy and inadvertent acquisition of footage of the public?

Yours sincerely,

G. M. Dover
