ViaStrada was commissioned by Waimakariri District Council (WDC) to investigate and quantify the pedestrian activity at five locations on Williams Street in Kaiapoi town centre between Hilton Street and Charles Street. ViaStrada engaged Lowdown Data to undertake pedestrian and motor vehicle turning counts using video collection units. This technology allows the client to gather survey information at low cost. This survey technique also obtained queue lengths at the Hilton Street and Charles Street roundabouts to inform design options.
