Public transport for Christchurch rebuild

Background

ViaStrada assisted CCC staff with analysis and planning for future rapid public transport (PT) corridors to stimulate land development and improve access for Christchurch. This could include conventional bus services, bus priority measures, busways, light rail and heavy rail. We helped review options for rapid PT services to various suburbs and provided advice on potential central city PT modes, routes and station locations.

ViaStrada's former office (brown, left) on Hereford St is close to the doomed Grand Chancellor Hotel building (centre rear).
