    ​​Hi all,

    This should also be in the Road Safety stream.

    When reviewing Traffic Impact Assessments do you pass on information to your Traffic group for investigation where it is identified in the report that there are high crash occurrences in the vicinity of the proposed development?

    Our proposed standards upgrade has the following clause:

    Proposals for new roads, intersections or facilities/features that will be vested in Council shall be subject to the NZTA Road Safety Audit Procedures for Projects, unless Council decides that audits are not required at any or all of the stages. The 'exemption declaration' shall be submitted as part of the application process to be considered by Council. An 'exemption declaration' may be completed for any or all stages of the project if in the opinion of a suitably qualified road safety auditor an audit is not necessary and Council will then consider and decide whether to accept it or not. Safety audits must address the needs of all road users, including the needs of pedestrians, cyclists, and disabled/elderly users. Where appropriate, the requirements of these groups may demand specific audit procedures. Recommendations from the audit report shall be implemented before the 224 certificate is issued or the contract works accepted for practical completion.

    The audit does take into account TAR's

    Hi Adam Good Afternoon,

    When reviewing Transport Impact Assessment (TIA) it is crucial to check the crash data of the road networks for the past years.Usually the traffic consultant should incorporate the crash data analysis in the report.But still you can obtain the data from the Mainroads.
    Thank you
    Kind Regards

    When I undertake a TIA for a client (Developer/Council/Stakeholders) and I notice the crash history points to possible existing issues I make a recommendation in my report for the road authority to undertake an independent review.

    Should you have any queries or require any additional information, please email/ call me. 

    Kind Regards
