Multi Modal Corridor Planning the Hutt Valley of the Wellington Region

This conference paper, from the 2002 meeting of the Institution of Professional Engineers New Zealand (IPENZ) Transportation Group, examines the development of a corridor plan within the Regional Land Transport Strategy for the Hutt valley, a subregion in the Wellington area of New Zealand. The author notes that this corridor plan needs to simultaneously satisfy regional travel requirements but also address the local Hutt Valley needs. The plan must determine how the region's highway network and regional passenger transport system can be best configured in the Hutt Valley and integrated with local roads and local travel needs. The plan included stopping the environment of decline in the Valley but still ensuring that the proposals support the region-wide strategy for the development of transport infrastructure. The process included the examination of the usefulness of high occupancy vehicle (HOV) lanes, toll lanes, bus lanes, and tidal flow lanes, in the context of a composite package of measures. A planning algorithm is provided in the appendix.
