Dear Mr Ross
Local Government Official Information and Meetings Act 1987 (LGOIMA)
Thank you for your email dated 24 November 2014 requesting:
1. What is the definition of Early Works for Otahuhu Transport Interchange, in other words for $6.3m for the
2014/2015 year what does it get us in regards to Otahuhu Transport Interchange if reprioritisation is not
successful in allowing the full set of works for Otahuhu Transport Interchange
2. The Tender Documents either open or closed for the construction of these “early works” for Otahuhu
Transport Interchange cannot be found on the various Auckland Transport pages including these two:
a. https://at.govt.nz/media/618879/NZTA-Awarded-Contracts.pdf b. https://www.tenderlink.com/aucklandtransport/
3. Is there a particular reason why these tender documents are not publicly accessible or not on your
Awarded Contracts PDF
4. Is there an updated version of the https://at.govt.nz/media/665907/CDD-Forward-Tender-Work-Plan-
which is meant to be updated monthly but has not been done so since August 2014
5. Are the designs for the Manukau Transport Interchange able to be released into the public domain yet? If
not when so please. What will happen with those designs if the Basic Transport Network continues and
the Manukau Interchange cannot be built until 2020/2021?
Otahuhu Transport Interchange
The Otahuhu bus interchange design is underway. The initial enabling works was tendered throughout October
2014 with the contract awarded mid-November and due for completion in the 1st quarter of 2015. This contract
is noted in the “Awarded Contracts” document available online: https://at.govt.nz/media/618879/NZTA-Awarded-
The Otahuhu bus interchange main works tender is expected to be out to the market by around March 2015. Manukau Transport Interchange
The Manukau bus interchange project is in the concept design stage with detailed design due to progress
throughout December through to Feb 2015.
The current programme is to be out to tender by mid-2015 for construction of the Manukau bus interchange.
With regard to the “Forward Work Plan” document, as noted on our website, this document is updated monthly
and made available for contractors to assist in planning activities. Further information can be requested by
emailing [email address].
Alternatively customers can also sign up at: http://at.uq.co.nz/signup
to receive updates.
If the Manukau Interchange design cannot be implemented then reduced facilities will be required for the New
Network bus service design in the interim.
We trust the above information has addressed the matters raised however, should you believe that we have not
responded appropriately to your request, you have the right in accordance with section 27(3) of the LGOIMA to
make a complaint to the Office of the Ombudsman to seek an investigation and review in regard to this matter.
If you have any further queries please contact Auckland Transport on 355 3553 quoting Official Information
