Traffic Engineering

 
  • Nazareth House

    ViaStrada designed the internal roads for Nazareth House, a retirement village and healthcare complex in Christchurch. The brief was to create a slow speed environment where drivers felt like guests, so that elderly residents walking along or crossing the roads felt safe. The 'at-grade' or level surfaces make it very convenient and accessible for the residents to walk in and out of their homes to their unique street environment.

  • Cycle lane separators

    Project Objective: 
    Research effectiveness of cycle lane separators

    ViaStrada has been commissioned by VicRoads (the state roading authority of Victoria, Australia) to undertake research on physical bicycle lane separators. Undertaking the trials included site selection, design of the empirical study and evaluation of the results. The aim of the study is to establish whether the devices are safe for all road users and effective in reducing the occurrence of drivers utilising the cycle lane. The trials are currently under way.

  • Kaiapoi Heavy Vehicle Tracking Tests

    Project Objective: 
    Testing to confirm heavy vehicle tracking curves for proposed intersection upgrade

    We don't just rely on high tech software, but when we have to design to low tolerances, we do real-world simulation testing to confirm design parameters and build stakeholder support!

  • University to City Cycle Path Scoping Study

    Project Objective: 
    To identify route and design options for a separated bicycle facility (SBF)

    This scoping study for a separated bicycle facility (where cyclists are physically separated from motor vehicles) analysed a variety of routes and design cross-sections between the University of Canterbury and the Christchurch central city. The project, which preceded the Christchurch earthquakes, provides valuable information on the feasibility and costs of separated cycle facilities. There has been considerable public support for cycling through the CCC's public consultation on how to rebuild Christchurch.
