Recommendation Date:30 July 2015
On 30 July 2015 the Commission recommends to the Chief Executive of the NZ Transport Agency that from a regulatory perspective he take the necessary steps to ensure that the relevant Safety Case(s) and resultant safety system(s) (including any lease or access agreements made under those systems) expressly articulate which party or parties is responsible for controlling and protecting pedestrians as they cross the boundaries between railway stations and the rail corridor.
While the Transport Agency gives the Commission an undertaking to implement this recommendation, we must first consider the statutory and regulatory options in which to do this. This will involve engaging with a number of relevant parties - a process that will take time. We will advise the Commission of our progress in due course.
