Cycle counting in New Zealand

Published: | Category: Walking & cycling , Planning, design, funding, building, maintenance of the transport network , Guidance for specialists | Audiences: Road controlling authorities, Walkers & cyclists

The report is a summary of a literature review of traffic-counting technology able to detect and monitor cycle traffic on a continuous basis and an internet-based survey of road controlling authorities (RCAs) and regional councils about their experience and interest in counting cycle traffic, either manually or automatically.

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.

Share the road: encouraging behaviour change between motorists and cyclists

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

We carried out this research to help us better understand attitudes of people when driving, walking and cycling towards one another on the road. We also examined some of the behaviours outlined in the road code/code for cyclists that are important to keep people on bikes safe on New Zealand’s’ roads. This work is intended to inform our education and advertising campaigns.   

The report and an infographic sums up the main national findings.

Understanding attitudes and perceptions of cycling and walking

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

The national cycling programme conducted a survey of attitudes to and perceptions of cycling among people who live in our main urban centres, to help track progress toward our goal to make cycling a safer and more attractive transport option. The research undertaken found information that confirms significant customer demand for the choice to cycle, and for better cycling networks to make cycling a much safer and more attractive choice than it is now. The research also found the many kiwis already own or have access to bikes and use them to get about town.

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 Waka Kotahi 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 Waka Kotahi staff on MAPHUB within the cycling and walking map. If requested, Waka Kotahi can provide PDF copies of this map for external use. Contact: multimodal@nzta. govt.

Cycle parking planning and design

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

This guidance summarises best practice provision of parking and end-of-trip facilities for people who cycle. This augments advice in the Cycling Network Guidance. Note that New Zealand does not have a cycle parking standard and the Australian Standard AS2890. 3 Bicycle Parking Facilities has substantial gaps. For additional information, readers are encouraged to refer to the Austroads research report Bicycle Parking Facilities: Guidelines for Design and Installation. Acknowledgements
