Policy And Strategy Development And Analysis

 
  • Low-powered vehicle research

    Project Objective: 
    Provide legislative guidance

    On behalf of the NZ Transport Agency, ViaStrada is conducting a research project to evaluate the safety challenges of e-bikes and other low-powered vehicles (mobility scooters, e-skateboards, e-unicycles, etc). The aim is to generate a set of regulatory and non-regulatory options for addressing those issues in the New Zealand context.

    Part 1 of the research is a review and assessment of technology (e.g. motor controllers, throttles vs. torque activation, lighting and braking), market characteristics, sales projections, and safety studies. Part 2 includes workshops with industry and other key stakeholders to inform an assessment of potential regulatory and non-regulatory options.

  • Christchurch Cycle Network Plan

    Project Objective: 
    Inventory existing and plan future cycle network for Christchurch using GIS

    Christchurch City Council (CCC) as part of the Christchurch Transport Plan (CTP) process commissioned ViaStrada to develop a GIS based cycle network. The development focus was on creating a contiguous level 1 (novice riders) and level 2 route (basic traffic skills) network. This was to align with the Christchurch Transport Plan (CTP).

  • Implementing a Central City Slow Core in Christchurch

    Project Objective: 
    Provide transport planning and engineering advice for a reduced speed zone ("slow core") for central Christchurch

    Reduced traffic speeds have been shown to improve central city liveability and street activity levels. This 2011 ViaStrada project suggested the boundaries, specific techniques, design concepts, and implementation steps needed to create a pedestrian-friendly "slow core" for Christchurch. A new 30km/h slow core has now been implemented in 2016, largely mirroring the area suggested by ViaStrada.
