We are working closely with Waka Kotahi, NZ Transport Agency, to include the assessment of greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions in the next round of modelling for the 2024 National Land Transport Plan (NLTP).
Our IDS GHG modelling tool is in development and will be included in dTIMS.
Our overall aim is to create a model that:
Excludes base level emissions from vehicles driving along the road (Waka Kotahi calculate these separately for their reporting purposes)
Includes emissions associated with undertaking physical works
Includes emissions associated with delays at road works, when such a model is considered sufficiently robust
As per our IDS charitable purpose, once completed this IP will be available to all New Zealand Local Authorities, regardless of size or in-house technical expertise.
