cope and projects

The company has been active in the New Zealand transport sector for 30 years (as of 2007), and has provided consulting services on a number of large projects, most recently on Stadium New Zealand, where they assessed the traffic and parking effects of providing a major new 60,000 seat stadium on the Auckland waterfront, and which they supported as a viable location in terms of traffic. [ [ Stadium decision: Noise 'not a problem' at waterfront] (New Zealand Herald newspaper)] [ [ Stadium decision: Government defends law changes] (New Zealand Herald newspaper)] TDG has also planned the pedestrian elements of the Westpac Stadium in Wellington and undertaken the traffic design for the SkyCity Auckland casino.

Other projects the company has worked on include traffic modelling such as for Transit New Zealand on the State Highway 20 Extension in southern Auckland, [ [ SH20 Hillsborough to Richardson Road - Assessment of Effects on the Environment] (Auckland City Council)] and research reports for government entities like Transfund New Zealand, such as 'The Ins and Outs of Roundabouts', a safety audit of roundabout research. [ [ Ins and Outs of Roundabouts] (Land Transport New Zealand)] Another field the company is very active in is traffic survey work, having, for example long produced the traffic volume reports of the New Zealand State Highway network for Transit New Zealand. [ [ State Highway Traffic Volumes 2001-2005] (Transit New Zealand)] The company also advises on construction and event traffic management, such as for the APEC meeting in Auckland in 1999.
