On 30 July 2015 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.

Throughout New Zealand, a wide range of level crossing-related activities and work is being undertaken by a variety of rail participants and agencies. This work encompasses level crossing infrastructure, planning, funding, risk review and risk mitigation.

Consequently, the Agency is commencing a ‘stock-take‘ of this work and the parties responsible for it to give us a greater knowledge base about the solutions being developed and by whom. When this work is completed and the Transport Agency has a comprehensive picture of the scope of activities underway, it will be in a clearer position to provide the Commission with information about this recommendation.
