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,

In response to my request about the procedures for the red light running on buses and trains ( and, I noted that there was a significant difference in the procedures dependant on the transport means.

I would be interested in any legislation that GWRC has requiring to stand down the train drivers, and any legislation for any policies on buses running red lights. Noting that both are illegal from the Land Transport Act and whatever covers the trains, I find the difference unusual.

Yours faithfully,

Hugh Davenport
