During 1987 and 1988, a major transportation study of the Auckland North Shore was undertaken by Takapuna City Council. Several major issues were addressed, including the size and shape of the North Shore and the Takapuna Central Area in the year 2001, the demand for cross harbour travel and the need for another harbour crossing, the capacity of the northern motorway system, and the arterial access routes serving the Takapuna Central Business Area. The first part of the study - an analysis of the arterial road network was reported in March, 1988. The second part of the study - an analysis of central area parking and circulation was completed in March, 1989. This paper briefly summarises the study, the philosophical approach taken, the analytical techniques used, and the study conclusions.
