dc.description.abstractThis paper reviews the transport situation in the northern sector of the greater Christchurch area, in New Zealand. It provides an overview of the specific geographical situation, highlighting the land use and allowing a good understanding of the modal choices of commuters. Its focus is on the commuter traffic situation in this area of increased low-density residential development, assessing whether residential living on large sections of land is sustainable long-term with peak-oil in the background. The study evaluates traffic data reports and surveys that deal with southbound traffic, including assessing the public transport option. The data is assessed in terms of consistency and checked against other available information. The analysis outlines the importance of consistency when collecting transport data to ensure coherent decision-making. The approximate energy demand for commuting from Rangiora to Christchurch is calculated using a simulation model developed by the author based on available data.en
