In most cities and towns, the majority of crash black-spots occur at major intersections.
Interest in the application of macroscopic models for the description of improvements in traffic safety has increased since the early 1980s.
The research identified how the physical noise and vibration generated by traversing ATP roadmarkings was influenced by the properties of the roadmarkings, such as their height, width and pitch, as well as by other factors, such as vehicle speed.
This research, undertaken 2008–10, investigated the comparative safety of multi-lane roundabouts versus signalised intersections, pedestrian facilities, vertical deflection devices and visibility to the right.
Recommendations are presented for adjustments to the procedures used by Transit New Zealand for determining accident savings from road improvements for project evaluation.
In this research project, the innovative 'hands-on' method, first developed by Walton and Thomas in 2005, was tested in its ability to evaluate the effects of improved road delineation on driver behaviour.
In the 21 years from 1987 to 2007 inclusive, 22 children were killed, 45 seriously injured and 91 received minor injuries when crossing the road to or from a school bus.
Detailed observations of air quality and local meteorology were conducted on either side of a stretch of the Auckland southern motorway, and in the surrounding residential neighbourhood.
The C-roundabout (cyclist roundabout) is a new multi-lane roundabout design (developed as part of a 2006 Land Transport NZ research project Improved multi-lane roundabout designs for cyclists) that aims to improve the safety of cyclists at multi-lane…
