Mr Punnett made this Official Information request to Auckland Transport

The request was successful.

From: Mr Punnett

Dear Auckland Transport,

I would like to receive the following information relating to the inductive loop traffic sensors installed at intersections around Auckland:

1. When did Auckland Transport become aware that the inductive loop sensors are often unable to detect small vehicles such as motorbikes and bicycles?

2. How much money was spent installing new sensors since Auckland Transport become aware of these issues?

3. The number of injuries and fatalities suffered by motorbikers and cyclists at junctions fitted with inductive loop sensors since Auckland transport became aware of these issues?

Yours faithfully,

A. Punnett
