Independent review into Transport Agency dealings with SkyPath Trust

The NZ Transport Agency initiated an independent investigation by legal firm Simpson Grierson to examine several aspects of its dealings with the SkyPath Trust.

The investigation examined whether the Transport Agency, through its employees or representatives, entered into any commercial arrangements with the SkyPath Trust, whether the Transport Agency, through its employees or representatives, promised or created an expectation that it would procure services from the Trust where it would be involved in designing, building or operating the walking and cycling crossing of the Auckland Harbour Bridge, and whether Transport Agency employees or representatives have acted in a way that undermines the reputation of the Transport Agency.

The report did not address the issue of intellectual property which has been raised by Bevan Woodward of the SkyPath Trust, because a separate legal opinion has determined this had not been breached.
