Pedestrian and cycle crossing at midblock locations(external link) (video)
This webinar is designed to introduce the transport industry to the latest crossings guidance now available in New Zealand including recent updates. After introducing the broad planning principles involved in assessing a crossing location, we will discuss design aspects of different mid-block crossing types.
Introduction to multi-modal guidance training(external link) (video)
This webinar introduces the suite of multi-modal guidance now available in New Zealand including any recent updates, and how they fit with other guides and frameworks such as the One Network Framework. The multi-modal guidance include:
- Aotearoa Urban Street Planning and Design Guide
- Pedestrian Network Guidance (PNG)
- Public Transport Design Guidance (PTDG)
- Cycling Network Guidance (CNG).
This is the first in series that will provide training on various multi-modal topics over the coming year.
Pedestrian planning and design update(external link)
This webinar provided an update on the development of the PNG, but also provided training on the following:
- Disability sector collaboration for inclusive design
- Safe obvious step free: principles for inclusive places
- Pedestrian level of service tool.

Urban mobility and liveable cities -webinar series
Waka Kotahi partnered with LGNZ to deliver Urban Mobility and Liveable Cities – a webinar course for elected officials in urban areas. The course is designed to introduce some of the fundamental principles of urban mobility for safer, cleaner and healthier towns and cities. It was developed following feedback from the sector that capability building at the local governance level is a priority – to help build strategic leadership for the challenging urban transformations we’re looking to deliver over the coming decade. Sessions include guest speakers sharing their perspectives on leading change in this area.
How to talk about urban mobility and transport shift
This webinar provides a theoretically driven, evidence-led framework so we can understand how to: improve people’s understanding, based on best evidence, of why a shift in transport modalities away from cars and towards active and public transport is needed, help people designing and leading the shift to have better conversations with the public and motivate people to act in support of these shifts.
Safe walking and cycling treatments for intersections and crossings
This webinar introduces some of the current state-of-the-art thinking around these safety measures for our active modes. Learning objectives include: Understanding the safety effects of different intersection/crossing measures for walking and cycling, Learning what safety measures are now more easily available for implementation via the Transport Agency’s Standard safety interventions toolkit and Innovating Streets programme and demonstrating lessons learned through recent case studies of intersection/crossing treatments around New Zealand.
Monitoring walking and cycling
This webinar introduces the tools and techniques for monitoring walking and cycling that are rapidly evolving. Many councils still rely on basic counting technologies or manual methods, but these methods can have high error rates or collection durations that are insufficient for year-on-year trend analysis.
