We work alongside clients and stakeholders to help them understand the intricacies of the Resource Management Act (RMA) as it applies to transport, and its impact on specific projects. Our ability to understand the development process from all angles means we can provide valuable insights into how proposed developments and planning changes will affect transport demands.

Our team’s expertise in this area includes:

  • Sustainable traffic and transport design advice, with a pedestrian and cycling focus
  • Traffic and transport assessments to obtain resource consent
  • Development of feasibility studies and due diligence 
  • Expert evidence/witness

  • Car lift and stacked car park design advice
  • S92 responses
