Transport is not only the veins, but an organ of every healthy city. Christchurch, like any city, depends on the circulation and transportation networks to keep it alive and functional, however, our research identifies networks that do not improve along with the ever growing region. Our aim is to analyze the circulation networks and identify rational proposals to optimize the connectivity. While the recent earthquakes have caused road closures and generally disrupted peoples daily lives, it also creates an opportunity to improve the transportation networks in the future reconstruction.
