Research Report 105 Public transport value for money measures

Published: | Category: Transport demand management , Research programme , Research & reports | Audience: General

This project was an initial examination of means of assessing the value for money being achieved from individual publicly-funded transport services. The feasibility of a national system to derive passenger kilometres and/or passenger boardings per $ subsidy for all contracted services at the route/time period or contract level was assessed. This involved a pilot study of two regions to identify data problems and analysis difficulties. Conclusions were drawn from this pilot study for a national system.

Research Report 164 The impact of small diameter tyres on pavement wear

Published: | Category: Activity management , Research programme , Research & reports | Audience: General

Small diameter tyres are increasingly being used in heavy vehicle applications. While they give operational advantages in some situations they may have a negative impact on pavement wear. This study, carried out between 1996 and 1997, investigated the implications for pavement wear of using small diameter tyres in place of standard sizes.

Research Report 222 Natural hazard risk management for road networks: part II: implementation strategies

Published: | Category: Natural hazard risk management , Research programme , Research & reports | Audience: General

Road networks are lifelines for the community and are essential for the economic and social well-being of New Zealand. Significant natural hazard events can cause widespread damage to transportation networks, leading to significant repair costs to road controlling authorities, access difficulties for emergency services and disruption to road users and the community at large.

Research Report 281 Effect on pavement wear of increased mass limits for heavy vehicles – concluding report

Published: | Category: Activity management , CAPTIF , Research programme , Research & reports | Audience: General

The road transport industry in New Zealand has been lobbying for increases in the allowable mass limits for heavy vehicles on the basis that this would give increased efficiency and benefits to the economy. Some of the proposals for increased mass limits involve increased axle load limits which would clearly lead to additional pavement wear. Road controlling authorities, while sharing the industry’s aims for increased efficiencies in the road transport system, are concerned that any additional pavement wear generated by higher axle loads will be paid for, so that the standard of the roading network can be maintained. At present (2005) Road User Charges (RUCs) are based on the fourth power law, which was developed from the AASHO road test in the United States in the 1950s. The pavements and vehicles used for that test differ considerably from those in use in New Zealand today.
