Maintenance plan for shared paths alongside motorways

J Turner made this Official Information request to New Zealand Transport Agency

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

From: J Turner

Dear New Zealand Transport Agency,

I am writing to request the maintenance schedule for the shared path alongside SH20 that goes between Orpheus Drive and Queenstown Road.
This has not been maintained for at least the last two years and vegetation overgrowth has now made the path effectively one way at a pinch point.
Please include what the schedule should be, when the next maintenance is planned, and any records of previous maintenance undertaken.

I would also like information on how cycleways are swept that are on-road within NZTA jurisdiction in Auckland, for example at the HIllsborough Road off and onramps going onto SH20.

Yours faithfully,

J Turner

Dear Official Correspondence,

Thank you for your reply.
However, in this case you are mistaken. Auckland Transport have previously stated that this work belongs to Auckland Council who are in charge of vegetation on Council land. However, Auckland Council state that as this is NZTA land, they are unable to do the work.
Can you please clarify this with the respective departments?
Thank you.

Dear AT Official Information (AT),

Thanks for the email. It is a shame NZTA has passed this on to you as I have been around this circle in the past. AT will say that this is Auckland Council's job as they look after vegetation, so it will get passed to AC. AC will then say this is on NZTA land so they cannot do it, and back we go.
Hopefully my cynicism is proven wrong!

Yours sincerely,

J Turner
