Information regarding a specific complaints

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,

I would like to request any information held by GWRC, Metlink, and the bus operators for the following incidents that have been reports. I would be interested in the investigation the operators took, whether any dashcam footage was requested by anyone or viewed, whether any black box data was requested by anyone or viewed, and whether there was any involvement from NZ Police to either GWRC, Metlink, the bus operator, or the bus driver.

1) 4th dec, 11am, route 52 northbound. A bus runs a red light while pedestrians still crossing on green man, forcing one to run. Mentioned via email to Bruce Horsefield and the info address on 10 Dec. Also mentioned on twitter at on 4 Dec, and also via email on 4 Dec. Bruce replied on 13 Dec suggesting that the operator viewed the footage.

2) 12 Dec, 8:43am, route 83 northbound. Mentioned via email to Bruce Horsefield and the info address on 12 Dec in multiple emails (one mentioned specifically that I didn't want the original complaint to be drowned out in the email chain). Also mentioned on twitter at on 12 Dec

My reasoning for this request is that the NZ Police have been informed by myself, and their actions towards investigating this has led me to believe minimal contact between NZ Police and the bus operator and/or drivers was made. I would like to know what level of contact was recorded by Metlink and the operators, in addition to what actions were taken by Metlink and the operators independently of the NZ Police.

Yours faithfully,

Hugh Davenport
