Published: | Category: Urban design , Planning, design, funding, building, maintenance of the transport network , Guidance for specialists | Audience: Road traffic engineers & consultants

The Urban Design Framework for the central motorway improvements emerged from the need to use a coordinated and integrated urban design process for the project. The attached framework outlined the process to achieve this.

Christchurch Southern Motorway – environmental, urban design and landscape masterplan

Published: | Category: Urban design , Planning, design, funding, building, maintenance of the transport network , Guidance for specialists | Audiences: Road traffic engineers & consultants, Roading contractors

The Environmental, urban design and landscape masterplan for the Christchurch Southern Motorway brings together a range of disciplines including: landscape architecture, urban design, architecture, art, ecology, various design engineering disciplines, planning and roading contractors. The Christchurch Southern Motorway occupies a mixed greenfield and brownfield sites that will connect urban with peri-urban and rural areas. The masterplan vision is developed through appraisals, workshops, consultation and creative thinking to provide an over-arching direction for the Christchurch Southern Motorway.

Tauranga Eastern Link – urban and landscape design framework

Published: | Category: Urban design , Planning, design, funding, building, maintenance of the transport network , Guidance for specialists | Audience: Road traffic engineers & consultants

The purpose of this framework is to describe the urban and landscape design concept for the Tauranga Eastern Link Project. It follows from an urban design report released in January 2008, Tauranga Eastern Motorway – urban design overview. The framework seeks to establish a balance between the state highway safety and operational objectives of New Zealand Transport Agency, the conditions applied to the four designations and the wider physical and environmental considerations for Tauranga, and the specific urban and landscape contextual issues relating to the highway corridor.

Western Ring Route – urban and landscape design framework

Published: | Category: Urban design , Planning, design, funding, building, maintenance of the transport network , Guidance for specialists | Audiences: Road traffic engineers & consultants, Roading contractors

The Western Ring Route urban and landscape design framework was prepared to provide an overall design direction for State Highway 20 (Maioro Road to Waterview) and State Highway 16 (St Lukes Road to Lincoln Road).

NZTA landscape and visual assessment guidelines (draft)

Published: | Category: Urban design , Planning, design, funding, building, maintenance of the transport network , Guidance for specialists | Audience: Road traffic engineers & consultants

The NZTA landscape and visual assessment guidelines (draft) promote ‘best practice’ for landscape and visual assessments (LVA) for NZ Transport Agency projects. LVAs are technical reports forming part of Assessments of Environmental Effects (AEE) for applications for resource consents and Notices of Requirement for designations.

Performance of linkage bars for restraint of bridge spans in earthquakes

Published: | Category: Road safety , Urban design , Planning, design, funding, building, maintenance of the transport network , Guidance for specialists | Audience: Road traffic engineers & consultants

The project involved both the testing of typical linkage bar assemblies and a review of analysis procedures used to determine the earthquake induced forces in bridge span linkage systems. Linkage assemblies formed from a number of different types of steel bar were tested for strength, ductility and fracture toughness. An initial test on one bar type was followed by three tests on each of 12 types and two tests on one further type. The analysis procedures that are currently used to evaluate the earthquake induced forces in linkage assemblies that restrain bridge spans were reviewed. Recommendations are made on the procedures best suited for application in New Zealand.

Te Rapa Bypass urban and landscape design masterplan

Published: | Category: Urban design , Planning, design, funding, building, maintenance of the transport network , Guidance for specialists | Audience: Local & regional government

The Te Rapa bypass urban and landscape design masterplan seeks to create an identity and ownership for the future direction of Hamilton city. It provides structure and opportunities for future land-use change whilst increasing pedestrians / cyclists' connectivity and local networks in conjunction with character of the wider Waikato River landscape.

State highway guide to acoustic treatment of buildings

Published: | Category: Urban design , Planning, design, funding, building, maintenance of the transport network , Guidance for specialists | Audience: Road traffic engineers & consultants

Noise mitigation provided by the NZ Transport Agency is always within the road corridor where practicable, using low-noise road surfaces and noise barriers. If those measures are not practicable then the acoustic treatment of buildings, such as the provision of mechanical ventilation so that windows can be left closed, may be offered to residents where required by NZS 6806. This guide has been produced to inform the Transport Agency staff and contractors about factors involved in the selection, design and installation of acoustic treatment of buildings.  

Victoria Park Tunnel – urban design framework

Published: | Category: Urban design , Planning, design, funding, building, maintenance of the transport network , Guidance for specialists | Audience: Road traffic engineers & consultants

The purpose of this framework is to provide urban design for the specimen design, procurement, design and construction, and asset management stages of the Victoria Park Tunnel Project (VPT). The VPT project is a key part of the Central Motorway Improvements and the Auckland motorway system. The project corridor extends along the existing State Highway 1 to the approaches of the Auckland Harbour Bridge. It is an area that encounters a range of urban, open space, indigenous heritage and landscape conditions, many of which are unique to the Tāmaki Makaurau Auckland identity.
