Hugh Davenport made this Official Information request to Wellington Regional Council

Currently waiting for a response from Wellington Regional Council, they must respond promptly and normally no later than (details and exceptions).

From: Hugh Davenport

Dear Wellington Regional Council,

This is a follow up request to

I am requesting all correspondence between GWRC and the operator (Transurban?) about a particular bus. I have been told by a GWRC staff member that correspondence was made on 17th, 19th and 21st of September 2018. This may not be all the correspondence between GWRC and the operator. This would have been in regards to a complaint made about a driver behaving dangerously around a cyclist (case number 157935).

I understand that some of the correspondence may include personal information (such as drivers name), rather than refusing to send the entire correspondence, could you rather just redact the personal information.

In addition, can you confirm whether the NZ Police were or were not in contact with GWRC at all during this complaint process.

The bus information is:
Bus number 3424
Date: 17th September 2018
Time: from 6:30pm to 7:30pm
Route number 7 - Kingston
Approximate location at 7pm: bus stop 7714, Brooklyn road by Nairn street (across road from the Renouf Tennis Centre)
Operator: Transurban

Yours faithfully,

Hugh Davenport
