Auckland Harbour Bridge active modes decision

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,

On 17th December multiple news media outlets reported that Waka Kotahi had made a decision not to reallocate existing bridge space to provide active transport options across the harbour bridge.

Stuff.co.nz reported: "A Waka Kotahi spokeswoman said the agency undertook a “thorough, detailed assessment” of a range of options to repurpose bridge lanes.
That included assessments of the costs and safety risks, as well as the operational, health and wider network impacts and benefits of each of the options, she said."

- Please provide all documents detailing this assessment and any report presenting it's conclusions to Waka Kotahi, including information presented to any part of the organisation and also any presentation or report provided to the board
- Please provide the minutes of the board meeting at which this information was received by the board and a decision was made
- Any additional documents presented to the board which were referenced or utilised in their decision regarding providing access for active modes to the Auckland Harbour Bridge

As this was a policy decision regarding strategic asset management, was presented to cabinet and has significant climate impacts, Waka Kotahi were legally required to complete a Climate Implications of Policy Assessment (CIPA) before making this decision.

Therefore, please also provide:
- The completed early engagement form sent to the Ministry for the Environment’s CIPA team to confirm if a CIPA was required
- The completed CIPA

Yours faithfully,

Tim Adriaansen
