Wellington traffic light control data and traffic flow statistics

Martin Krafft made this Official Information request to Wellington City Council

This request has an unknown status. We're waiting for Martin Krafft to read a recent response and update the status.

From: Martin Krafft

Dear Wellington City Council,

Please provide the data controlling all traffic lights in the Wellington CBD, such as timings, interdependencies, and other rules, using a standard file format, including adequate documentation to be able to make sense of them.

Please also provide aggregated statistics regarding the flow rates across the main arteries of town at different times of the day, again, using an accessible format.

If you could also provide the data for SH1 between Wellington and Upper Hutt, that would be helpful, too. Or do I have to approach Regional Council about that?

Most of the time, driving in Wellington means stopping at every second red light, when in very rare cases, it's actually possible to drive across town on a "green wave".

As I am sure you're aware, breaking releases microparticules, and accelerating pumps excessive exhaust into the air, so optimising the flow across town would be beneficial for the environment, increase the standard of living for everyone, and save drivers real money.

I'd like to understand, how this comes to be, study the patterns, and using a simulator, maybe be able to suggest improvements.

Yours faithfully,

Martin Krafft
