Dear New Zealand Transport Agency,
A fair number of months ago there was a fatal accident which damaged a guardrail on the road over the railway. Why has this guardrail not been repaired and when is it planned to do so? There is at present a 70kmh speed sign which is routinely ignored. It is also regularly blown down by the wind.
Over the years lighting has been reduced inside the tunnel at all times and the number of fittings removed resulting in vastly reduced light levels. What are the required lumen levels inside the tunnel given it is almost a black hole when entering particularly during very bright days? How is this monitored and controlled? Who did the risk assessment? Please supply a copy.
There used to be signs at each end of the tunnel telling drivers to turn their park lights on. These have been removed. Why - especially considering the reduced lighting levels? Who did the risk assessment? Please provide a copy.
Workers in the tunnels during periods of maintenance. Being a shift worker I travel through the tunnel at various periods. I see workers in there without any gas protection PPE. How are gas levels monitored? I travel through railway tunnels and am required to carry a personal gas monitor and gas mask/ spare filters and a self-contained-self rescuer. What breathing PPE is required for the road tunnel workers? Again, who did the risk assessment - please provide a copy.
