  • Scheme investigation studies for corridors, intersections and areas
  • Traffic signal designs and reviews
  • Speed management reviews/strategies
  • Pedestrian and cycle facility designs and reviews
  • Car parking and access design/reviews
  • Road safety and geometric design reviews
  • Level Crossing Safety Impact Assessments (LCSIAs)
  • Formal trials of new/innovative traffic control devices and design layouts
Notable recent projects include:

Bollard pictureWhakatāne District Council asked ViaStrada to provide a wayfinding signage plan for Whakatāne District's walking and cycling network. Its focus: how can we help people (and visitors) navigate their community?

Photo of one of the intersectionsViaStrada was engaged by Christchurch International Airport Limited (CIAL) to undertake a detail design stage road safety audit of the Ron Guthrey Road extension including a roundabout and the right of way off George Bellew Road.

Map of proposed pedestrian safety improvementsViaStrada was commissioned by Shotover Jet Ltd to assess the user functionality and safety of the operation site for all site users.

Manawatu River BridgeViaStrada has been commissioned by the Palmerston North City Council (PNCC) to undertake a NZ Transport Agency (NZTA) compliant scheme stage safety audit of the Manawatu River pedestrian & cycle bridge (since named He Ara Kotahi).

Location planViaStrada was engaged by the NZ Transport Agency to assess the impact of a proposed new subdivision on the existing local road network.

queued traffic In order to optimise the function and safety of the route by mode and time of day, ViaStrada (with Aurecon as a sub-consultant) conducted site audits at eight intersections; researched the planning and engineering context; identified capacity constraints; analysed crash data and safety issues, considered modal requirements; identified engineering and operational improvements with costings.

Cycle laneViaStrada has been engaged by Auckland Transport to provide concept designs to address outstanding issues from the Puhinui Road Post Construction Safety Audit.

Shared path crossingViaStrada was commissioned by Auckland Transport to conduct a safety audit of the 85% detailed design plans for the New Lynn to Avondale shared path.

Scheme design of cycle linkViaStrada was commissioned to prepare a concept plan with design options for the Eltham Road / Beaver Road corridor, an important north/south link across Blenheim that serves three major schools and a day care centre.

intersection viewViaStrada staff have safety audited the proposed traffic signals at the intersection of Main North Road with Belfast Road at various project stages. The junction is proposed to change from a T-intersection to a cross intersection to give access to a residential development.
