WSP Opus research provides a wide range of research and services in all areas of transportation. This includes research around making roads safer, encouraging public transport use, shared-mobility systems and active transport modes such as walking and cycling.
Our research tells us that compared to other countries, New Zealand scores below average for transportation and mobility infrastructure. In WSP's Global City Index, Auckland - our countries most progressive city for transport - scored low for several mobility metrics.
Our team of researchers, engineers and technicians help government transport authorities, planning agencies, private developers and transport operators to get the most from transport infrastructure projects.
We provide testing and advisory services to all areas of transport, including rail and ports. Out team can help you understand the impact of transport infrastructure and how people interact with it.
For example, we undertake studies of behavioural responses to proposed safety measures such as:
Central government and private industry have joined forces in a world-first investigation to assess braking distances on our unique chipseal roads.
The NZTA has engaged WSP Opus Research to investigate the existing behaviour and interactions between cyclists and motorists to help determine ways to improve the safety of cyclists on the road.
