The NZ Transport Agency have recently published a research report that Abley were commissioned to write. 

We provided guidance on what capacity exists to assess the performance of the state highway road networks using digital data sources (GPS, Bluetooth and weigh-in-motion). The report written by Dale Harris and Dave Smith explored how various data sources could inform a range of network indicators covering private and public transport modes, safety, environment, activity and cost.

From there a GIS-based proof-of-concept model was developed to demonstrate how currently available data sources could inform these indicators, which were then displayed in a web viewer that could be used to help the NZ Transport Agency measure the performance of the state highway network. The full research report can be downloaded from the NZ Transport Agency website.
