SHW2 location and cause of motor accidents between Waihi and Tauranga

We are looking for historic data (2000- present) pinpointing the location and cause of accidents on SHW2 in the Western Bay of Plenty between Waihi and Tauranga. specifics would be; Type of incident/accident (including reported overtaking and near misses) Specific location of incident Number of vehicles involved Cause of accident Direction offending vehicle was travelling in Date and time of day/night Any format this information comes in would be useful

As successive governments and ministers have chopped and changed the budget for this section of road we are trying to save government money by doing a cause analysis and identifying particular sections of the road which need immediate attention rather than excessively expensive "four laning of SHW2 from Waihi to Tauranga" . Our working hypothesis is that the majority of accidents are caused by frustrated drivers due to a lack of passing lanes.

Not sure why this tab is here, it seems to be repeating the above section

Preparing data for release

Hi Rob, I apologise for the delay of the data you requested. I have the job ready for release now but the data is a mix of information about how to access our open data portal and summarised tables, neither of which would fit in a csv file. Are you able to provide me with an email address to send this information to? Many thanks Greg Low
