Manawatu Region heavy vehicle movements
Analysis of Heavy Vehicle Movement (HVM) – Corporate Logistics Regional Trafic Database
We prepared an analysis for the business community of mean average daily traffic (MADT) counts for heavy vehicles traveling through the Manawatu Gorge. The study covered the 10-year period of 2008 to 2017.
Economic impacts for the business community following closure of the Manawatu Gorge road were presented to Manawatu Chamber of Commerce. Predicted changes to regional HVM traffic models were calculated along with suggested new patterns of import and export container movements originating from and transversing through the Manawatu region.
