Well done to Dave Smith and Robyn Hyde, who had their research report published by the New Zealand Transport Agency recently. "Research Report 616: Assessing the value of public transport as a network" explored the elements that influence the value of a public transport service and developed a framework that proposes to extend the NZ Transport Agency's economic evaluation procedures.
Recent work by Abley in collaboration with NZTA and other agencies has been published in the latest edition of the Journal of Australasian College of Road Safety (page 36). NZTA’s Speed Management Guide guides and supports local authorities in their efforts to put in place speed management measures. The technical framework of the guide provides a single assessment for determining safe and appropriate speed at a network level, and aligns travelling speeds with road function. This work focuses on the technical framework to the Waikato region and includes analysis of intervention strategies to road sections where speed management would have a high benefit in terms of safety and efficiency.
