Published: | Category: Urban design , Planning, design, funding, building, maintenance of the transport network , Guidance for specialists | Audience: Road traffic engineers & consultants

The SH20 Manukau Harbour Crossing – urban design framework provides a consistent design approach to landscape and urban design for the State Highway Manukau Harbour Crossing Project. The framework will establish the overall direction for urban design matters with an aspiration to create a quality environment that reflects community values.

The framework deals predominantly with the physical form of the State Highway 20 Manukau Harbour Crossing project area and its surrounds. This includes the relationship between buildings, structures and open space, traffic access, landscape design/treatment and ecological processes. It considers how these physical aspects relate to broader social and economic issues – the mix of activities, economic opportunities and community safety.
