Research Report 147 Security of New Zealand's strategic roading system

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

The reliable operation of New Zealand's road network is critical to both its economic success and its social development. Disruption to some parts of the network may therefore have a large negative impact on these.

The report outlines a systematic 'desktop' approach which, by reviewing the importance of individual links in the network, and the actual risk of travel disruption. it then identifies which sections of New Zealand's Road Network should be accorded priority in either reducing the risk of disruption or accommodating the disruption better within the network, and recommends some developments to Transfund's Project evaluation manual to address disruption and service issues.

Keywords: road network, strategic network, risk analysis, network security, lifelines, travel disruption
