VRU Risk Assessments

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 a recent OIA request (OIA 10448) I sought information regarding risk assessment of road users outside of a vehicle.

Unfortunately the information provided was insufficient to answer my questions and there may have been some misunderstanding around what was requested.

I am interested in any and all safety audits or assessments of the following facilities which assess the risk of collision presented to road users outside of a vehicle.

1. Hutt Expressway (SH2) between Ngauranga Station and Petone:
Please note that this is for the existing on-road hard shoulder facility currently in use, and not the future planned shared pathway. Please provide safety audits and assessments for design through construction. If the decision to allow access for bicycles was made post-construction, please provide all audits and safety assessments conducted in relation to the use of this facility for people on bikes at the time this decision was made.

2. Manawatū River Bridge (SH1):
For completeness, please provide all safety audits and assessments from design through construction of the new (currently in use) Manawatū River Bridge, regardless of whether road users outside of a vehicle are mentioned or not.

3. The intersection of the Waikato Expressway (SH1) and Gordonton Road (SH1B):
In addition to the information provided within OIA 10448, please provide any design or pre-construction audits and safety assessments which assess the risk of a collision for road users outside of a vehicle.

Thank you for your assistance,

Tim Adriaansen
