Research Report 653 Extension of NZ Transport Agency Research Report 629: System dynamics investigation of freight flows, economic development and network performance

Published: | Category: Economic development , Research programme , Research & reports | Audiences: Heavy vehicle operators, Road traffic engineers & consultants

In 2017 we developed a system dynamics model to study inter-regional freight and traffic flows in the Auckland–Hamilton–Tauranga triangle. Here we extend the model northward to Whangarei in order to incorporate Northport. This enables us to provide an order of magnitude estimate of how many truck movements might be required to transport freight between Auckland and Northport, if most or all of the exports and imports that currently pass through Ports of Auckland were to enter and leave New Zealand via Northport instead.

Research Report 650 Understanding current and forecast visitor flows to the South Island

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

Data is required for destination management, both of current visitor activity and future activity. This report reviews the data that currently exists for visits to the South Island of New Zealand, where tourism growth has been, and is still expected to be, strong. Not surprisingly no one dataset was found that could reasonably describe visitor activity, nor were there forecasts for core visitor activities across each region of the South Island. Methods were tested to show how currently available data, including an International Visitor Survey and a measure of electronic card spending, could be adjusted to derive measures of visitor presence.

Research Report 649 Great Kiwi road trips: enhancing New Zealand’s tourism industry through better visitor journeys

Published: | Category: Environmental impacts of land transport , Research programme , Research & reports | Audience: General

The purpose of this study was to gain a better understanding of the expectations, motivations, experiences, information preferences and behaviour of visitors (both domestic and international) travelling on New Zealand’s transport network.

Research Report 645 Post-impact care: How can New Zealand address the fifth pillar of road safety?

Published: | Category: Safety, security and public health , Research programme , Research & reports | Audiences: General, Medical practitioners, Road controlling authorities

Post-crash care of victims is considered by the World Health Organisation to be the fifth pillar of the safe system approach to road safety. Timeliness and quality of transport of crash victims from the crash site to hospital door is crucial to medical outcomes. It is important that road controlling authorities (RCAs) and Road Policing work together with Emergency Services to provide the best possible outcomes for the available resources.

Research Report 643 Drivers’ response to warnings/information provided by in-vehicle information systems (IVIS)

Published: | Category: Safety, security and public health , Research programme , Research & reports | Audience: General

The purpose of the research was to provide an analysis of drivers’ use of IVIS, smartphone applications and nomadic devices and their likely effects on driver performance.

Research Report 644 The crash performance of seagull intersections and left-turn slip lanes

Published: | Category: Safety, security and public health , Research programme , Research & reports | Audience: General

A number of alternative intersection layouts are used around the country to reduce traffic delays and to improve road safety. One such group of alternative intersections are termed ‘priority controlled seagull intersections’.

Research Report 646 Impacts of socio-demographic changes on the NZ land transport system

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

We present a discussion about how socio-demographic factors affect the demand for personal land travel.

Research Report 647 Driving change technology diffusion in the transport sector

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

Technology diffusion will have profound impacts on the transport system. This report does not attempt to predict the future, but instead aims to guide policymakers in thinking about how technology could affect the transport sector.

Research Report 642 The influence of internet use on transport demand

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

This report presents a discussion of the influence that internet-enabled communication technologies are having, and might have, on patterns of transport demand in New Zealand. First, a range of mechanisms by which the internet could reasonably be expected to influence transport demand are described. In-depth interviews with decision makers at public and private organisations in New Zealand highlighted two main areas where change is being driven by internet communication technologies: direct effects on transport demand; and the changing nature of the physical workplace, which has outcomes for transport demand as people change where, when and how they work.

Research Report 641 Developing a national measure for predictable public transport: bus, rail and ferry

Published: | Audiences: Rail participants, Road controlling authorities, Road traffic engineers & consultants, Roading contractors

The ability to reliably predict public transport (PT) journey times is critical for network operators and transport authorities to measure, monitor and target improvements to the PT network, with flow-on effects for customers.
