Talking Transport was launched in 2018. Its vision is to try to provide a forum for discussions about transport, and to make it easier for regular people to be informed about issues which affect us all.

Most content will focus on Christchurch as that is where I live, but I am happy to talk about other places too as they crop up.

My name is Chris Morahan. I have worked as a transportation engineer and planner for the last 10 years for a range of different consultancies, Councils and Transport Agency. Most of my time I’ve been based in Christchurch, with short stints in Wellington and Brisbane.To begin with I’ll be the sole writer, but I’m hoping that there will be others out there who are interested in contributing to the discussion too. Everything I write is solely my personal views and nothing to do with my employer. I’m not affiliated to any political parties. I’m writing purely as a resident and a parent who wants to leave my kids the best possible city I can.
