Dear Rebecca Dobbs,

Following up on my earlier reply, I also note the GWRC Lett of reply also states:

"T) Can the GWRC please provide a copy of business case, benefit cost assessment, the detailed costing and the detailed funding report for “Wellington Rail Development Plan- Associated Operational costs” that has a LTP cost of $37M?
Parts O – T of your request are answered below.
An indicative business case in respect of the Wairarapa and Manawatu Carriages, and the Additional Rolling Stock, was provided to Waka Kotahi in 2019 and is available on our website at the following link: http://www.gw.govt.nz/metlink-greater-we...

Having checked the GWRC web site page, I can access the indicative business case in respect of the Wairarapa and Manawatu Carriages but there is no link to the indicative business case in respect of the Additional Rolling Stock. Therefore the information requested under item T is to be provided.

Can the GWRC please provide the indicative business case in respect of the Additional Rolling Stock either by adding it to their web page or uploaded to the FYI web site ?

Yours sincerely,

Tony Randle

Dear Rebecca Dobbs,

Sorry, I am confused with your question "can you provide me the details for uploading to the FYI website?"

Last year you uploaded the equivalent response information: https://fyi.org.nz/request/12894-request...

Can the GWRC please just do the same for your response this year ?

Yours sincerely,

Tony Randle

Dear Rebecca Dobbs,

Thank for you uploading the GWRC response attachments to the FYI web site.

I assume you're just waiting to get and upload the business case for the Additional Rolling Stock to complete the GWRC substantive information response.
