Recommendation Date:19 February 2009
Date Closed:21 October 2010
The development of Project Kupe system has the potential to reduce the risk of collision on the network but, due to resource and funding restraints without a cost/safety benefit analysis being undertaken, the project has extended out by 2½ years and has still not been approved. The Commission recommends the New Zealand Transport Agency takes action to address the safety issue (004/09).
NZTA is working closely with rail industry to impliment the safety recommendation.
