Request for the Stage Timing Model used to guide Auckland Light Rail development

Tony Randle made this Official Information request to Auckland Transport

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

From: Tony Randle

Dear Auckland Transport,

Auckland Transport published a report called "Stage Timing Model Summary and Background", produced by MRCagney, on or about 27 January 2016.
(https://at.govt.nz/media/1934739/bus-ref...)

I am interested in obtaining some of the information used to produce this report.

Paragraph 1 includes that "The Stage Timing Model (STM) was developed to provide guidance about when each stage of the proposed Light Rail Transit (LRT) network should be built, by identifying when bus volumes at stops on key city centre corridors exceed operational capacity." Also graphs of bus stop capacity from the STM are documented in Appendix 6.

Paragraph 2 refers to "the Stop Capacity Methodology and Bus Stop Monitoring memos".

A) Can Auckland Transport please provide a copy of the Stage Timing Model described and used in this report to produce the Appendix 6 graphs ?

B) Can Auckland Transport please provide a copy of the "Stop Capacity Methodology" memo referred to in this report ?

C) Can Auckland Transport please provide a copy of the "Bus Stop Monitoring" memo referred to in this report ?

D) Can Auckland Transport please provide a copy of the meeting agenda, presentation material and meeting minutes of the meeting where the Stage Timing Model was presented to Auckland Transport ? For the sake of clarity, I ask that the meeting date/time, location and attendees be provided as part of this request.

Please note that if this information is held in electronic form, I would prefer it was provided in its complete and original electronic format. If there is linked electronic information, then a copy of this linked information is also requested.

I am happy to discuss any issues or points of clarification on this information request via the FYI web site.

Yours faithfully,

Tony Randle

Dear AT Official Information (AT),

Thank you for providing much of the requested information.

However, the decision by AT to refuse to provide a copy of the Stage Timing Model used to support the Bus Reference Case and the Centre Access Plan is obviously very disappointing. The 8 January 2019 AT letter of response states:
“The Stage Timing Model is a computer model developed by and the intellectual property of MR Cagney and is therefore not readily able to be provided as a standalone item. However, the model outputs are able to be and have been provided without needing access to the working model. This is the same situation with any computer model used by AT. We are happy to provide any of the model outputs, upon which subsequent reports are based.”

To complete this information request, some clarification information related to this decision to refuse the provision of the Stage Timing Model is requested:

A) What are the specific grounds in the LGOIMA under which AT has decided to refuse providing the requested Stage Timing Model ?

B) Can AT confirm it has considered the public interest as required under section 7(1) of LGOIMA in deciding to refuse providing the requested Stage Timing Model ?

C) Has AT asked MR Cagney if they would be prepared to release the Stage Timing Model and, if so, what did MR Cagney say in response to this request ?

D) With respect to the decision by AT to refuse to provide a copy of the Stage Timing Model, can AT please provide a copy of all correspondence, meeting notes and/or reports related to this decision (including any correspondence within AT and any correspondence with MR Cagney) ?

Yours sincerely,

Tony Randle
