Passing & overtaking on New Zealand two-lane state highways: policy to practice

Published: | Category: Research & reports | Audience: Road controlling authorities

A Passing and Overtaking Policy has been formulated to improve the efficiency of New Zealand’s two-lane state highway network. The policy will be applied to two-lane state highways running through rural and peripheral urban land-use areas, up to the point that four-laning is likely to be required. This paper reports on how the policy was derived and the results of two studies that have contributed to improving implementation of the policy.
