We are very pleased to announce that Jeanette Ward has recently been awarded her Masters of Engineering in Transportation (MET).  Jeanette’s one year project was on - “A decision making framework for assessing the merits of One-way and Two-way streets”.  Jeanette’s project was motivated by the diverse views on the Christchurch central city one-way street conversion proposal and the need for a robust decision making tool as other New Zealand cities are also investigating conversions.  The research did not conclude which type of street is the best in a generic sense, but focused on what each city needs to consider so it aligns with what is trying to be achieved.  The research involved a literature review, industry interviews and a case study.  The case study was the potential conversion of a pair of one-way streets in Dunedin to two-way.  Congratulations Jeanette we are very proud of you.
