Hana Blackmore made this Official Information request to Auckland Transport

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

From: Hana Blackmore

Dear Auckland Transport,

Would you please clarify your LGOIMA response in your letter of 16 September 2019 - (CAS-1147797-T1C5Q3) where you state:

"Auckland Transport must meet the following conditions to receive NZTA funding for weed and vegetation control:
• In urban areas, grass cutting to lawn standard or maintenance of alternative low-cost ground cover treatments in medians and traffic islands only ..."

This has been interpreted by Auckland Council officers to mean that NZTA funding in urban areas is ONLY provided for this grass cutting and ground cover treatments on medians and traffic islands and not for ANYTHING ELSE on the kerb and channel, footpaths or berms.

If this is correct, can you confirm that weed and vegetation control operations in urban areas with chemical, mechanical or thermal technologies etc is NOT ELIGIBLE for NZTA funding and therefore has to be wholly funded by Auckland Transport.

Yours faithfully,

Hana Blackmore
