This recommendation is accepted. We intend to notify large road vehicle operators of the emergency contact number of the National Train Control Centre. The NZ Transport Agency aims to implement this recommendation as soon as practicable. When this notification is completed, we will submit appropriate evidence with a view to closing out this safety recommendation.
