​Note
Guidance on 'safety' and 'efficiency'

As part of assessing the effects on the transport network the ITA should consider any changes over the relevant assessment period to the:
a.  Predicted level of personal risk to individuals (safety) using the network
b.  Levels of service (efficiency) of the network.

This should include specific consideration of whether the desirable levels of service below can or should be maintained. This should recognise the pre-proposal levels of service and whether other benefits accrue that could have the potential to offset or otherwise support a lesser level of service. For example longer traffic delays resulting in slower speeds may support a pedestrian-friendly land use environment in the Central City.

It is not a requirement of the Plan that individual proposals mitigate the effects of other proposals in order to achieve the desirable levels of service. Where the pre-proposal desirable levels of service over the assessment period have already been exceeded, it is not expected that a proposal be required to restore the network to the desirable levels of service, rather it is expected that the proposal mitigates its effects to maintain the pre-proposal level of service for the relevant assessment period.

Desirable levels of service:

i.    An average delay per vehicle during Peak Periods on the approaches to intersections of no greater than:
    55 seconds for the Strategic Network, Major and Minor Arterial transport corridors
    80 seconds for all other transport corridors

ii.    On the Strategic Network, Major and Minor Arterial transport corridors during Peak Periods:
    Average vehicle speeds between intersections restricted to no less than 90% of the posted speed limit
   Average vehicle speeds, including intersections, constrained to no less than 18 km/h

iii.  Unless demonstrated otherwise with site specific data, Peak Periods are taken to be 7am to 9am and 4pm to 6pm Monday to Friday.
