Recommendation Date:30 July 2015
Date Closed:2 November 2016
On 30 July 20152 the Commission recommends that the Chief Executive of the NZ Transport Agency liaise with the relevant road control authorities in Auckland and Wellington, and KiwiRail, to review all pedestrian rail crossings and ensure that they address the safety issue whereby they have a level of protection commensurate with the level of risk currently and in the immediate future.
KiwiRail and Auckland Transport are working on a solution to address the identified safety issues at the pedestrian level crossings at Morningside Station in West Auckland. The Transport Agency is actively monitoring this situation to ensure the resolution is implemented in an effective and timely manner.
We cannot yet provide a definitive timeframe for when these changes will be completed but give an undertaking to update the Commission once the next stages of this work have been determined by KiwiRail and Auckland Transport.
