NZUP Northern Pathway

Tim Adriaansen made this Official Information request to New Zealand Transport Agency

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

From: Tim Adriaansen

Dear New Zealand Transport Agency,

In previously lodged OIA 8518 on 23 July 2021, I asked for information relating to Northern Pathway decision making, specifically:
"Document bri-2174 (northern pathway options summary) dated 11 May 2021, paragraph 27 notes in relation to lane reallocation of the harbour bridge that "Converting a single lane was also considered, however this is not considered safe given the resultant width and speed differential between users.
- Please provide the engineers/consultants report or other documentation on which this conclusion was based, including lane-width assessments and layout designs upon which the assessment was made."

In response, I was referred to Appendix 1 of BRI-2118 Northern Pathway Project Update.
This, unfortunately is self-referential - it is simply another document stating a similar conclusion.

This document includes the following paragraph:
"The forecasted volumes, speed differential of different users and gradients of the bridge do not meet the required standards and would carry significant safety risks. There would also be implications to the operation and performance of the existing users of the bridge, including public transport and freight."

Please provide any engineering, consultancy or other professional reports or documentation which inform this design and decision. To help clarify this request; in particular I am seeking engineering reports which describe why a 3.5m wide lane, with additional shoulders, is considered necessary for motor vehicle traffic in this location.

Furthermore, Minister of Transport Michael Wood has directed Waka Kotahi to investigate options for trialing active transport mode access to the Auckland Harbour Bridge in the near future.

Please provide documentation of the options presented to the minister and any accompanying briefings or discussion papers giving advice as to the suitability, cost, timeframe and safety of these options.

Yours faithfully,

Tim Adriaansen
