  • 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.

  • Central City Pedestrian Level of Service

    Project Objective: 
    Investigate ways of improving pedestrian level of service (LOS) at traffic signals in the central city

    Pedestrian LOS methodology outputPedestrian LOS methodology outputChristchurch City Council commissioned an investigation into ways of improving pedestrian level of service (LOS) at traffic signals in the central city. The underlying hypothesis of this project is that improving the pedestrian level of service of the central city will increase prosperity.

    ViaStrada developed a method of measuring pedestrian LOS and applied this to 32 signalised intersections with 110 pedestrian crossings to develop a detailed proposal for each.
