The information you requested – CAS-390074-V9V9Z3
Thank you for your request for information dated 10 June 2021 about City Rail Link
subsurface decisions. Please note your request was initially received by Auckland Council
and City Rail Link Limited (CRLL), and questions 1 and 2 of your request were transferred to
Auckland Transport (AT) as they relate to the information held for the period prior to 1 July
2017 (the date when the City Rail Link Limited was formed).
The CRLL project has always been undertaken by a standalone project team, largely
keeping its own records apart from delegated approvals held by senior AT management.
Eight subsurface properties were purchased for a total of $815,900 prior to 1 July 2017. This
• The land value
• Section 72 of the Public Works Act 1981- is an additional payment based on the
requirements of the Public Works Act.
• Section 66 of the Public Works Act 1981 – these costs are the reimbursable costs of the
owner's negotiations with AT, for example, legal and valuation.
AT does not hold information in relation to question 2 of your request. Therefore, this part of
your request is refused under section 17(g) of the LGOIMA as we believe this information is
held by CRLL.
Should you believe that we have not responded appropriately to your request, you are able
to make a complaint to the Office of the Ombudsman in accordance with section 27(3) of the
LGOIMA Act, and seek an investigation and review in regard to this matter.
