2.6 Harbour bridge intro

  1. 1. 2.6 Explain aspects of a contemporary NZ geographic issue THE LONG WAY HOME 3 credits”
  2. 2. 2.6 The Long Way Home ACHIEVEMENT ACHIEVEMENT WITH MERIT ACHIEVEMENT WITH EXCELLENCE • Explain aspects of a contemporary NZ geographic issue Explain, in depth, aspects of a contemporary NZ geographic issue • Explain, comprehensively, aspects of a contemporary NZ geographic issue
  3. 3. What’s it about? • The Auckland Regional Land Transport Strategy asked Transit New Zealand, in partnership with the Auckland Regional Council, North Shore City Council and Auckland City Council, to: – Plan for and protect the ability to construct ANOTHER road crossing over the Waitemata Harbour near to the existing Auckland Harbour Bridge, and connecting directly to the North-western Motorway State Highway 20 extension by way of a tunnel. – Plan for and protect the ability to put in a passenger transport connection between North Shore and Auckland Cities across the Waitemata Harbour and connections to the south of the Central Business District (CBD). – Ensure that any additional crossing of the Waitemata Harbour includes plans to include or later allow for walking and cycling.
  4. 4. Auckland – Why is a 2nd harbour crossing needed? • The Auckland region is the biggest economic centre in New Zealand, accounting for around one third of the nation’s economic output. It also has the fastest population growth rate in the country. • The current population for the Auckland region is nearly 1.37 million people. Projections suggest that, by 2050, the region could have 2 million people.
  5. 5. The Existing Auckland Harbour Bridge • The effective operation of Auckland’s transport network is limited by the capacity of the north-south corridor or connection • The reliance on the Auckland Harbour Bridge also poses a large risk to how our transport network functions. • What happens if the bridge is damaged or unable to be used for a period of time?
  6. 6. Connecting the North • The North Sector of Auckland is expected to have 443,000 people by 2050. (it had 350,000 people in Dec 2008) • The North Shore is set to account for 66% of this Northern sector population in 2050. We are currently on track to achieve this predicted population.
  7. 7. The Auckland Harbour Bridge • Although a number of projects, such as the Upper Harbour Motorway and State Highway 20 extensions (Waterview), are underway to help improve the north-south accessibility, heavy reliance on the Auckland Harbour Bridge remains. • The Auckland Harbour Bridge had an annual average daily traffic count of 165,000 vehicles per day in 2010, and already operates almost at capacity in peak periods.
  8. 8. Construct a map of the Auckland Motorway Network • Show the main arteries of the Auckland motorway network on the outline map provided. • Include : – State Highway 1 – State Highway 20 – State Highway 16 – Their alternative names too
  9. 9. So what are we going to do? • You will undertake some research in class time and be provided with a resource booklet to help you. Both will be able to be used during the write up of the assessment • The write up will take place during class time • There are 3 main tasks to complete in this assessment that you will need to research.
  10. 10. Task 1. Describe the nature of this issue • This means you will: – Outline the significance of location to this issue. – Outline one effect this issue has on people. – Outline one effect this issue has on the environment. – Accessibility is relevant because… – Location is important because …
  11. 11. Task 2. Explain different viewpoints on the contemporary geographic issue • This means you will: – Name four people and/or groups of people who have different viewpoints on the issue. Select people who have significantly different viewpoints. (e.g. economic, social, political, or environmental factors.) – Explain in detail each viewpoint. Give reasons why each person or group holds that particular viewpoint. Remember to use specific information, including perspectives, geographic terminology and geographic concepts.
  12. 12. Task 2. Explain different viewpoints on the contemporary geographic issue • You will also need to: − Select a person or group, and explain in detail how their viewpoint might change over time. For example, what events or factors might affect the viewpoint? Would the person or group change their viewpoint if they heard other people’s viewpoints on the issue?
  13. 13. Task 3. Comprehensively evaluate courses of action • This will mean you will need to: – Comprehensively evaluate each course of action. This means explain the strengths and weaknesses of each action. Use specific evidence to support your explanation. – Decide which of the courses of action is the best option. Provide detailed reasons supporting the course of action you have chosen and specify the reasons for not choosing the other two options.
  14. 14. What is the current situation? • After many public meetings, different courses of action have been presented to the community about the issue. • Three possible courses of action are: 1. Build a new Harbour Bridge that connects to St Mary’s Bay 2. Build a new tunnel that connects with Queen street and Britomart 3. Leave things the way they are and encourage public transport use and carpools
  15. 15. Option 1– NEW BRIDGE • This option would mean a new bridge built to the east of the existing bridge at a cost of $1-2 Billion You will need to research: • The strengths of building a NEW BRIDGE • The weaknesses of building a NEW BRIDGE
  16. 16. Option 2 – NEW TUNNEL • This option would mean a new tunnel built to the east of the existing bridge at a cost of $5 - 6 Billion You will need to research: • The strengths of building a NEW TUNNEL • The weaknesses of building a NEW TUNNEL
  17. 17. Option 3 – DO NOTHING • This option would mean nothing would be built with only the cost of ongoing maintenance of the current Auckland Harbour Bridge ($3m per year) This means you will need to research: • The strengths of NO NEW BUILD and ENCOURAGING PUBLIC TRANSPORT • The weaknesses of NO NEW BUILD and ENCOURAGING PUBLIC TRANSPORT
