Research report 507 The implications of road investment

Published: | Category: Research & reports , Research programme | Audience: General

The objective of this research (undertaken in 2010–12) was to provide improved evidence (potentially leading to improved modelling, monitoring and evaluation methods) on the implications of major road investments in New Zealand on significant factors including travel demand, operational performance, environmental effects, emissions, road safety, development patterns and economic effects.

Research Report 571 Approaches to valuing injury and mortality risk in transport assessments

Published: | Category: Research & reports , Research programme | Audience: General

This report describes a review of literature on approaches to valuing injury and mortality risk in transport assessments.

Research Report 511 Value capture mechanisms to fund transport infrastructure

Published: | Category: Research & reports , Research programme | Audience: General

Throughout the world, transport infrastructure is increasingly being funded by charges that more closely target the direct beneficiaries of the infrastructure. One form these charges can take is a levy on land owners or developers – ie value capture mechanisms. In New Zealand there are a number of mechanisms that can be defined as value capture mechanisms: development contributions, financial contributions, targeted rates, and other negotiated mechanisms that sit outside of legislation (ie do not refer to policies contained in a council’s long-term plan).

Research report 471 The benefits of public transport - option values and non-use values

Published: | Category: Research & reports , Research programme | Audience: General

This research was undertaken in New Zealand in 2010-11 to investigate the economic concepts of option values and non-use values as applied to public transport services, and to undertake primary market research in New Zealand to estimate approximate valuations.

Research report 472 New Zealand bus policy model

Published: | Category: Research & reports , Research programme | Audience: General

A methodology and computer-based model was developed to analyse the performance of urban bus services in terms of their operations, market indicators and financial performance. The main input to the methodology and model is a database of existing bus services, disaggregated by route and time period, and including operating statistics, patronage, fare revenues and unit costs. The NZ bus policy model operates at a route level and has two main applications:

Research Report 518 Econometric models for public transport forecasting

Published: | Category: Research & reports , Research programme | Audience: General

This paper presents the findings from an econometric analysis of public transport patronage growth for a selection of New Zealand cities: Auckland, Wellington, Hamilton and Tauranga. The primary objective of the econometric analysis was to provide an explanation of historic growth patterns and, in doing so, provide up-to-date public transport elasticities for use by transport planners and policy analysts.

Research Report 562 - Economic benefits of park and ride

Published: | Category: Research & reports , Research programme | Audience: General

This research report investigated the economic and financial benefits from providing expanded park and ride (P&R) facilities. The project objectives were to assist decision-makers by providing guidance on:

Research Report 479 The economic and land use impacts of transformational transport investment

Published: | Category: Research & reports , Research programme | Audience: General

The purpose of this research, which was undertaken between July 2010 and June 2011, was to develop, test and recommend additional methodologies that could be used to quantify the economic productivity and land use impacts when assessing transformational or structural transport investments over time. Currently there is a knowledge gap in this area and the intention was to develop a more strategic approach to assist in gaining greater value for money from future transport investments. We investigated how it might be possible to get a forward-looking view of the productivity and land use changes associated with transformational transport investments. In our view, the retrospective case study approach can be used to provide a predictive tool to assess land use and productivity effects of transformational transport investments. One key factor that enables this is that the tool is intended to be employed at the project inception phase.

Research Report 520 - National long-term land transport demand model

Published: | Category: Research & reports , Research programme | Audience: General

This report describes a national long-term land transport demand model (NLTDM) for evaluating transport demand scenarios looking out 30 years and taking account of mega-trends in: population growth dynamics; spatial demographic trends; technology trends; income and economic growth; industrial composition; and policy.

Research Report 566 Assessing new approaches to estimating the economic impact of transport interventions using the gross value added approach

Published: | Category: Research & reports , Research programme | Audience: Road traffic engineers & consultants

Current transport appraisal methods, with their focus on the economic welfare benefits and costs of transport investment, are well grounded in theory and widely used, including by the NZ Transport Agency when it comes to prioritising transport interventions in New Zealand.
