Design guidance for pedestrian and cycle rail crossings

Published: | Category: Walking & cycling , Guidance for specialists | Audience: Local & regional government

The Transport Agency and KiwiRail have been leading the development of a design guide for pedestrian and cycleway treatment at level crossings.   The guide will improve safety, usability, compliance, consistency and will simplify the design process.

Specification for design, construction and maintenance of cycling and shared path facilities

Published: | Category: Walking & cycling , Planning, design, funding, building, maintenance of the transport network , Guidance for specialists , Specifications

This specification details the NZ Transport Agency’s requirements for the design, construction and maintenance of cycling and shared path facilities on the state highway network. This specification does not currently apply to footpaths but work is underway to better understand the design, construction and maintenance requirements for footpaths. While targeted at cycling and shared path facilities on the state highway network, this specification may be adapted by other road controlling authorities for their own use. The specification is supported by notes providing additional advice on the specification, a visual audit guideline, and a map of the identified State Highway Cycle Network Facilities on which the specification applies. The map of state highway cycle network facilities is available to internal Transport Agency staff on MAPHUB within the cycling and walking map. If requested, the Transport Agency can provide PDF copies of this map for external use. Contact: multimodal@nzta. govt.

The Pedestrian Experience literature review

Published: | Category: Walking & cycling , Guidance for specialists , Research & reports | Audience: Local & regional government

The question of pedestrian experience is an important one, as it can help to shape the streets in a way that will encourage more people to enjoy them as pedestrians. The purpose of this literature review is to bring together a disparate literature on pedestrians to consider: who walks, why (and why not) they walk, where they walk, and their attitudes and beliefs to walking. Most importantly, this review will consider how these different facets shape their experience as pedestrians. Inconsistencies in the literature and research gaps are also highlighted in this review.
