Research & reports
The purpose of this research report was to review the use of congestion charging schemes in relation to the urban form of a selection of international cities. The study concentrated on Singapore, London, Stockholm and Rome and drew comparisons to the New Zealand environment, particularly Auckland, Wellington, Tauranga, and Christchurch. Through the evaluation of the international systems, this research intended to highlight the benefits and characteristics that could be used to manage the increasing congestion, and provide better travel demand management solutions in New Zealand. In particular, the research benchmarked the technology used in relation to the travel patterns, geography and urban form.
