Important News for NZ Traffic Counts

NZ RCA Identification Number Has Changed

Each NZ RAMM database includes an identification number for the RCA. These identification numbers were arrived at by starting at 1 for the Far North District and increasing by 1 for each council in a southerly direction. This numbering system has worked successfully for many years.

ONRC Changes

The One Network Road Classification (ONRC) project required seamless data transfer between NZ RAMM databases and the NZTA. This required matching identification numbers (TLA IDs). NZTA have adopted the Statistics New Zealand system of TLA identification which differs from the RAMM system.

So for ONRC moderation purposes, RSL updated the identification number in each of the NZ RAMM databases to use the Statistics NZ TLA ID. This was done on 17 July 2014.

NZ Users of MetroCount Traffic Executive Software

This will have no effect on everyday usage of RAMM, but those NZ councils that import their traffic counts in MetroCount format should advise their contractor to use the new TLA ID instead of the old one they have used in the past. This is because the file names generated by MetroCount include the RCA ID in the Name and in the Count Site Description. The list below shows the original RAMM RCA ID, and the new TLA ID.
