On 5 May 2016, the Government announced its electric vehicle uptake package, a cross-government programme of work that aims to accelerate the uptake of electric vehicles in New Zealand to reach 64,000 vehicles by 2021.
In our planning, we work to build connections with local networks and maintain the functioning of the state highway.
Local roads – the roads administered by city and district councils – make up about 80,000 kilometres (88%) of all New Zealand’s roads.
Urban design is design that seeks to create desirable places for people to live, work and play. It involves the design and placement of buildings, roads, rail, open spaces, towns and cities.
The cost of moving freight directly impacts on our standard of living. By delivering freight efficiencies, the cost of doing business is reduced and can result in cheaper goods for all New Zealanders and an increased competitive advantage for our exporters. This can help grow our economy and create employment.
