MWH New Zealand Ltd (Christchurch) and ViaStrada evaluated five different potential cycle network models. ARTA’s British expert peer reviewer thought that our GIS-based methodology, using Auckland demographic data and existing transport models, was pretty clever.
End result – a clear idea of how to develop the regional cycling network (and a happy client!).

GIS analysis and maps and a comprehensive report
First stage complete, with five models tested, resulting in a recommended model. ARTA and Auckland City Council have asked ViaStrada to work with Opus International Consultants (Auckland) on the next project stage, combining their expertise to develop a methodology to identify and prioritise new routes in the regional cycle network, using Auckland City as a test case.
