Aspects and impacts of state highway activities

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

In order to ensure value-for-money and consistent environmental impact assessment and mitigation across the state highway network, the Environment and Urban Design team works closely with project managers to collect best practices, identify relevant international trends and develop New Zealand specific guidelines.

We have prepared a high level aspects and impacts register which lists all the potential environmental and social impacts of state highway activities.

Impact assessment guides help to achieve a nationally consistent application of assessment methods within the context of Transport Agency business processes. Environmental and social impact assessments assist in evaluating options; understanding and mitigating impacts; making decisions to progress a project; as well as supporting statutory approvals for approved projects.
