Research Report 651 Identifying freight performance and contextual indicators

| Category: Economic prosperity , Research programme , Research & reports | Audiences: General, Heavy vehicle operators

This research identified eight freight indicators which can be used to understand the performance of the freight sector. The use of indicators in the freight sector is a substitute for ‘perfect information’ and while technological developments and improvements in the capture and synthesis of data may get us closer to this state, the freight sector is not yet at this point. The proposed suite of freight indicators were identified through desktop analysis combined with broad stakeholder consultations and a clear focus on the mutual issues that ‘matter’. It is hoped that by focusing on mutual issues of interest, these indicators will endure inevitable changes in policies, technology and market dynamics. This durability will ultimately enable trends to be tracked and monitored over time and give the sector one source of the truth.

Research Report 606 Towards a safe system for cycling

| Category: Safety, security and public health , Research programme , Research & reports | Audiences: Advice and assistance, General, Walkers & cyclists

Making urban cycling a safer and more attractive transport choice is now a NZ Transport Agency strategic priority. Currently, road trauma for cycling is lower than other modes; however, unless a safer system for cyclists is developed, including more effective cycling education, an increase in road trauma is likely with increased investment and promotion. The research first identified key cycle safety interventions through the development and application of a cycling safety system model. The development of this model, a first for New Zealand, was informed by contemporary models of crash causation, which examined distal and proximal crash causation factors. Key findings were the need for a strong mandate and strategic direction for cycling, and improved systems to provide for cyclists in road design. Second, the report provides guidance on how best to prepare New Zealanders for utility cycling, drawing on key literature and engagement with stakeholders and end users.

Management of audio tactile edge line markings

| Category: Roadmarking , Research & reports | Audiences: Road traffic engineers & consultants, Roading contractors

This report by VicRoads may be useful for surfacing engineers and asset engineers trying to decide 'should I chipseal over my audio tactile profiled (ATP) roadmarkings?' The report concludes a small (7mm) seal which equates to a New Zealand Grade 4 chip (or a small Grade 3 chip) may be applied over ATP roadmarkings while still maintaining reasonable audio and tactile response.

Floodlighting pedestrian crossings

| Category: Crash analysis , Research & reports | Audiences: Road controlling authorities, Walkers & cyclists

This report details the results of the survey of floodlighting pedestrian crossings. Companion reports detail the results of the other two safety areas.
